Community Action of South MS holding free tax prep services

The Community Action of South Mississippi Volunteer Income Tax Service is ready to help individuals and families with annual incomes up to $60,000 get ahead financially, pay down debt, and work toward saving for the future.

VITA offers free tax preparation and electronic filing for a quick refund. IRS-trained and certified volunteers 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. Community Action of South MS Executive Director Vanessa Gibson said, “Come in, you need to be prepared with all of your documents. So, bring your driver’s license. We need some kind of identification. We need to have your social security card for everybody who you are going to file on that tax return and we need all of your income data, whatever you have been mailed from your employers or your social security information, bring all of it with you. We have screeners who will meet you.”
