MADISON (WKOW)--Free income tax preparation is available once again at the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) project at the Financial Education Center in Madison. The FEC is located in the Villager Mall at 2300 S. Park Street.
Low income, elderly and/or disabled taxpayers are served on a walk-in basis on Mondays and Wednesdays from noon until 6:00 and Saturdays from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm.
In 2008, the VITA project in Madison was able to assist nearly 6,000 taxpayers who qualified for Earned Income Tax Credit and other tax credits by preparing their tax returns free of charge. In the first 2 weeks of the 2009 tax season the site has already serviced approximately 1,600 taxpayers.
