VITA Tax Program

What is VITA?: The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program offers free tax help to people who generally make $55,000 or less, persons with disabilities and limited English speaking taxpayers who need assistance in preparing their own tax returns. IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation with electronic filing to qualified individuals. Each year, Burroughs helps hundreds of individuals and families complete their tax returns, saving them hundreds of dollars in preparation fees and returning over a million dollars to our community.

Our Partners: Burroughs partners with the Connecticut Association for Human Services, the IRS and joins with over 100 other sites across the state to provide free tax preparation services to its community members. Our IRS certified volunteers prepare federal and state returns, file them electronically and provide the taxpayers a paper copy of their return.

2022 Tax Season: Information about the 2022 tax season, including necessary documents, procedures, and dates for appointments will be posted here in early January 2023.
