Community Action of South Mississippi offering free tax prep services
It’s almost tax season and to help those who need assistance, Community Action of South Mississippi Vita offices will open the week of January 24th to offer free tax preparation services.
IRS trained and certified volunteers will work one-on-one with filers to prepare and electronically file state and federal income tax forms at no charge and determine qualifications for tax credits and refunds.
Vita helps individuals and families with annual incomes under $60,000. Adult and Community Services Director Lee Ann J. Kendrick said, “We do this to help our clients, our community members, our family and friends keep more money in their pocket. If I am doing your taxes for free than you get to save that money that you would have spent somewhere else.”
Those interested can make an appointment by phone or go to the site locations in Harrison, George, and Jackson counties.
