It’s almost Tax Day, and preparing your federal and state taxes privately can be costly. That’s why this Saturday I’m partnering with the United Way’s Earn It! Keep It! Save It! program to host a Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) service in the district.
VITA sites provide free tax preparation services from IRS-certified volunteers to individuals and families who earned less than $54,000 in 2016.
Here are the details:
Saturday, March 25, 2017
8 am - 4 pm
St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Church
3450 Tennessee Street
Vallejo, CA 94591
Appointments are recommended but not required and can be made by calling 211.
If you qualify, please attend this free tax assistance service and learn about California’s Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) which could put money back in your pocket. You could be eligible for more than $5,000 when you claim both the state and federal EITC!
Don’t forget to bring the following items with you:
•Photo ID for each adult on tax return
•Original Social Security card or ITIN letter for each person on your tax return
•W-2s from all jobs held in 2016
•All 1099s, 1098s and any other tax forms
•List of calculated self-employment expenses
•Your household’s health coverage information (Forms 1095-A, B or C)
•Savings and checking account and routing numbers for direct deposit of refund
•Child care provider information
•Landlord’s name, address and phone number for CA Renter’s Credit
•Last year’s tax return
If you have any questions don’t hesitate to call my office at (925) 521-1511.
