United Way offering free, volunteer tax help

You can get free help with your taxes through the United Way of Bartholomew County if you meet certain criteria.

The VITA/AARP Volunteer Tax Assistance Program is underway and is available to help Bartholomew County residents who make less than $64 thousand dollars, who have disabilities, who are elderly or who have limited English skills. IRS-certified volunteers provide confidential and secure basic income tax return preparation with electronic filing to qualified individuals.

The sessions are being conducted at Fair Oaks Mall through mid-April. Assistance is available by appointment only. Reservations are on a first-come, first serve basis. Appointments can be made by calling 812-375-2216 anytime between 9 and 4, Monday through Friday.

The United Way is also partnering with three online programs that will allow you to self-file. You can get more information at uwbarthco.org/taxes.
