TEAM seeks volunteers for free tax preparation service

TEAM, Inc., is seeking volunteers to assist low-income families and individuals in filing their taxes and claiming refunds owed to them, such as federal Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Child Tax Credit (CTC) that can boost their yearly income by up to 35 percent. The TEAM VITA program is held at the VITA Clinics located at TEAM Derby, Derby Neck Library and the Milford Senior Center and operates from January 29 to April 16, 2018.

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) offers free preparation of federal and state income tax returns to low-income individuals and families. No experience is necessary.  All volunteers will receive training appropriate for their position.  Volunteers receive the materials for self-study on basic income tax law for federal and state returns.  In addition, training sessions will take place in January 2018.

To become a VITA Volunteer and to learn more about the program, a VITA Information Session will be held on Monday, Oct. 30 at 5 p.m. at TEAM, 30 Elizabeth Street in Derby. Call (203) 736-5420 ext. 202 or email to reserve a seat.
