Vermont Business Magazine If your household income is less than $54,000 annually, then you probably qualify to have your taxes done for free through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA)Program at Champlain Valley Office of Economic Opportunity (CVOEO). Check the CVOEO Website at www.cvoeo.org to confirm eligibility, and to learn what to bring to your tax appointment. Then all one has to do is call 211 and choose Option 5 to make an appointment. 

You can also get your Renter Rebate completed with Travis Poulin on Tuesdays or Saturdays, by contacting him for an appointment at 862-2771 ext. 736 or email tpoulin@cvoeo.org.

“WHAT!??!! – says a 75-year-old man who had never applied for a rent rebate before….and who is getting $823 back. His neighbor told him to come and see us. He has rented the current apartment for 3 years, never knew what to do with the landlord certificates he was sent. – VITA Volunteer

VITA is a federally funded program that offers free tax help for low-to-moderate income taxpayers and elderly taxpayers. Volunteers are trained and certified by the IRS. Last year VITA volunteers helped 1,466 households to file their taxes, returning more than 2.2 million dollars to the Vermont economy in state and federal refunds.
