Now in its 17th year, the Sheldon Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Site is officially open at Northwest Iowa Community College (Building B—Room 220). The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program at Northwest Iowa Community College offers FREE tax help to people who generally make $56,000 or less, persons with disabilities, limited English-speaking taxpayers, and the elderly who need assistance in preparing and filing their 2019 tax returns. Our trained, IRS-certified volunteers will provide free basic income tax return preparation with electronic filing to qualified individuals.

NOTE: This year again, clients will be scheduled for an initial 15-minute INTAKE/interview appointment, which will then be followed up with a separate 15-minute final review/OUTTAKE appointment. The appointment schedule includes various time slots available on the following Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays throughout February and March and the first week in April. Instructors Sheila Drenkow and Janet Boone are serving as the VITA Site Coordinators.
