Free tax preparation is provided through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, for low- to moderate-income residents of Massachusetts. Certified volunteers help qualified individuals prepare basic tax returns.
Valley Opportunity Council (VOC) offers free electronic filing (e-file). Those who take advantage of the e-file program will receive their refunds in half the time compared to returns filed on paper – and even faster if they elect to have their refunds deposited directly into their bank accounts.
VOC VITA tax preparation locations in Chicopee, Holyoke, and Westfield.
