HRDC to Provide Tax Assistance for 9th Year
Need help with your taxes? The HRDC will again provide tax assistance this year for qualifying individuals in the Bozeman area. This is their ninth year providing tax preparation services through their Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA).
Individuals and households who make less than $57,000 are eligible.
- Appointments are required.
- Services will be drop-off/pick-up instead of face-to-face because of COVID.
- VITA customers need to bring a photo ID & social security card to their appointment to verify identity.
- Customers must also bring all tax applicable documents for the 2020 tax years (Forms W-2, 1099, 1098, 1095-A/B/C, charitable contributions), including Notice-1444 and Notice 1444-B reporting stimulus payments.
- If you would like direct deposit of your refund or payment, you will need to provide your bank account number & bank routing number.
“VITA is one of the most effective ways to provide financial opportunity to individuals and families in our community. Of people we served last year, the average refund was around $1,800. That can mean a lot to a household,” says Marc Graham, HRDC Financial Opportunity Coordinator.
