VITA offers free tax preparation to those of low- to moderate-income residing in Massachusetts. Certified volunteers help qualified individuals prepare basic tax returns. 

Valley Opportunity Council offers free electronic filing (e-file). Those who take advantage of the e-file program will receive their refunds in half the time compared to returns filed on paper – and even faster if they elect to have their refunds deposited directly into their bank accounts. 

Eligibility:

  • Must reside in Massachusetts
  • Annual individual/family income cannot exceed $54,000
  • Those who are self-employed or have rental income are not eligible
  • Those who earned income or have received unemployment from out-of-state are not eligible for assistance
