Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program
Clinch Valley Community Action participates in the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program (VITA), which is sponsored by the Internal Revenue Service. All volunteers are IRS certified. If you live in Tazewell County or any of the surrounding communities, you may qualify for this free service. We will electronically file your Federal tax return for you. For Tazewell County residents, we will file your state return through the Office of the Commissioner of the Revenue. All other state returns will be electronically filed, when possible. We also offer preparation for other states, as well.
Total household income must be less than $56,000. Please remember to bring the following on the day of your appointment:
- Valid photo ID for you (and your spouse, if married filing joint).
- Social Security cards for you, your spouse, and all dependents being claimed on the return.
- All financial documents (W2, 1099, and any other documentation regarding your income).
- Any other documents required to prepare your return. For instance, if you have insurance through the Affordable Care Act, we will need the 1095-A to complete the return.
- Direct Deposit information (a copy of a check).
We are an appointment-based service. You must call 988-5583 to make an appointment. We will being making appointments for 2019 tax returns by the middle of January 2020.
For those who feel confident preparing their own tax returns, the United Way of Southwest Virginia, in conjunction with H&R Block, is offering myfreetaxes.org. To qualify for this free service, your household income must be less than $66,000.
We thank the Virginia CASH Campaign, the United Way of Southwest Virginia, and the Southwest Virginia VITA Coalition for their generous financial support.
