Free Tax Assistance for Low-Income Taxpayers Starts February Third at Moraine Township

From February 3 through April 8, 2017, Moraine Township will offer free assistance to low-and-moderate-income taxpayers filing their 2017 income tax returns through the IRS VITA Program (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance).

Volunteers are trained and certified by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to prepare basic returns for taxpayers earning less than $55,000 in 2017. Appointments will take place in the Moraine Township Office, 777 Central Avenue, Highland Park, and are available Tuesdays from 9:00 until 8:00, and Saturdays 9 AM to 12 PM; taxpayers are welcome to walk-in Saturdays from 9 AM to noon.

"We are fortunate to have dedicated volunteers offering their time and skill to assist taxpayers in this effort," noted VITA Site Co-Coordinator Donna Novickas. "Many of our volunteers are returning for the third year to help our residents."

Noted Co-Coordinator Ron Altman, "Volunteers are well trained by the IRS program, and the feedback from taxpayers about how much they appreciate having a place to obtain this help is rewarding."

Commented Moraine Township Supervisor Anne Flanigan Bassi, "We live in an extraordinary community where people give so much of themselves to help neighbors who may be struggling. We see this daily with the almost 40 individuals who help weekly in our food pantry, other volunteers who spend 40 hours a year training to help residents enroll for subsidized health insurance, and a corps of tireless volunteers who work on our citizen advisory committees and our holiday gift drive."

Call 847-780-6644 today to schedule an appointment.
