United Way of Williamson County in partnership with AARP, IRS, Literacy Council of Williamson County and WBC Opportunities, will connect individuals and families with IRS certified volunteers who will help families file their returns at no cost.

Taxpayers are eligible to have their tax returns filed at no charge and specially-trained volunteers will assist in identifying tax credits available in order to maximize each person’s federal tax refund. The VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) Sites will serve those who made less than $50,000 in 2012. The AARP TAX-AIDE Sites do not have any restrictions on income or age.

No appointments are needed. All returns are filed electronically and taxpayers generally receive their refunds within seven to 10 days.

Taxpayers will need to bring the following items:

  • Valid drivers license or photo ID
  • All W-2’s and 1099 Forms (if any)
  • Social Security Cards for tax payers and all dependents
  • Birthdates for all dependents
  • Day Care Receipts and Provider ID #
  • Education Receipts (if any)
  • Mortgage property taxes or interest (if any)
  • Interest and dividend statements from your bank/savings
  • Bank Account # and Routing # for direct deposit (a voided check is best)
 

Both spouses MUST be present if filing a joint return.
