Volunteer Income Tax Assistance

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program offers free tax help to people and household who generally make $60,000 or less, persons with disabilities and limited English speaking taxpayers who need assistance in preparing their own tax returns. IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation with electronic filing to qualified individuals.

CAPTAIN’s VITA program is in its 20th year of operation.  IRS-certified volunteers give many hours to this program, completing tax returns for over 500 households each year.

To make an appointment, call 2-1-1 on or after January 17, 2023. When you call, tell them you’d like to make a tax appointment with CAPTAIN CHS and they will help you out.

Appointments are available Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, and Saturday mornings, late January – early April, and are located at the CAPTAIN CHS main office at 5 Municipal Plaza, Suite 3 in Clifton Park.

For other questions about the program, call 518-371-1185 x111.
