It’s the dawn of the New Year; we’re buckling down with our resolutions, innovating our missions and anxiously awaiting the addition of our W-2 to our MyPay. Yep, ladies and gentlemen, it is that time of year again—tax season.

The staff at the Region Legal Service Office (RLSO) is pleased to offer the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) tax services again this year. This year’s program will run a little differently to better accommodate customer intake and ensure that everyone’s taxes are completed in a timely manner.

To help us help you, please read our policy below to ensure that you have everything you need to complete your taxes and when our office will be open to assist you. The Tax Center is located on the second floor of Building 1A and will open to customers, Feb. 5. The hours will be 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m. to noon on Friday.

For the month of February, the Tax Center will process 1040EZ and 1040A only, on a walk-in basis. It is important that you understand what kind of tax return you will be filing to ensure you are at the Tax Center during the appropriate times.

In March, the 1040EZ and 1040A will still be a walk-in basis; however, anyone with a 1040A must call and make an appointment.

To clarify, if you answer ‘yes’ to the following questions then you must wait until March to complete your taxes with the VITA center:
• Do you own a house?
• Do you rent property?
• Do you own a business?
• Do you have investments?
• Did you recently adopt a child?
• Did you recently marry a foreign national?
• Do you have more than one year of taxes to file?

If you are interested in being a VITA volunteer, training will take place the last week of January.
