We are unable to serve taxpayers who claim rental or farm income or file as married filing separately. Services will be offered Monday through Saturday. Morning, afternoon and evening appointments are available. All persons at the VITA site are required to wear a mask. This includes volunteers and clients. If you are not feeling well on the day of your appointment, cancel your appointment and reschedule for a different day.
Appointments are available for both in-person and drop-off tax preparation. Please allow a minimum of one hour for your full service tax appointment. drop-off appointments should take no longer than 30 minutes. Drop-off returns will be completed by our virtual tax team and returned electronically or in-person to the client within one week.

Free tax preparation is available to Racine County residents who cannot afford to pay to have their taxes prepared for them thanks to the VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) program and amazing community volunteers. This program aims to help families avoid high tax prep fees, access all credits they are eligible for and connect families to services and programs that will help them increase their financial stability.
