The Clearview Library District will host free tax preparation assistance each Monday through April 5 at the Windsor-Severance Library.

The service is provided free of charge to community members with less than $57,000 in income or who are more than 60 years old. The following tax returns can be prepared through the program:

  • Form 1040 and Schedules 1, 2, 3 / Schedules A, B, D, EIC, R, limited C’s (no losses), E (Royalties), K-1 (Interest / Dividends)
  • Child and Dependent Care Expenses, Child Tax Credit, Earned Income Credit, Education Credits, Recovery (Stimulus) Rebate Credits

The tax preparation service is provided by the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, a national program between the Internal Revenue Service and nonprofit organizations. Tax preparation at the Clearview Library District is completed by IRS-certified volunteers from Realities Focus.

“We believe that by hosting this program we are meeting a vital need within the community for accessible and affordable tax assistance,” said Jennifer Bradley, Adult Programming and Collections Librarian. “Filing taxes can be tricky. The VITA program gives our community members the opportunity to get the help they need to make sure their taxes are filed properly and on time.”

Registration is required for initial appointments at clearviewlibrary.org/vita; drop-ins will not be allowed. A second appointment will be scheduled by the VITA Tax preparer for participants to receive the completed returns. COVID-19 safety measures will be in place for the in-person meetings.
