RPL to Serve as Drop-Off Site for VITA Program

Rodman Public Library will serve as a drop-off location for the United Way of Greater Stark County’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program.VITA

Trained VITA volunteers help qualifying individuals file returns for free, looking for all possible deductions and credits. The free tax preparation service is available to households that earn less than $60,000 if filing single and under $90,000 if filing a joint return. Taxpayers with disabilities and those who speak limited English may also be eligible.

VITA is now taking appointments to check for eligibility and to schedule drop-offs for February through April for the 2022 tax return season. An appointment is needed for all drop-offs.

Those wishing to take advantage of the VITA program should visit uwstark.org/vita to download and print an IRS Intake Form and an IRS Consent Form. Both must be filled out so VITA volunteers can prepare and process your taxes. A list of other required documents is also posted on the website.

Those who would like more information about the VITA program or those wishing to make an appointment should call 330-994-VITA (8482).
