Tax Preparation Services Event by Qualified Volunteers for Those Who Qualify Senator Gloria Negrete McLeod (D-Chino), in partnership with the Internal Revenue Service announced tax preparation services through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program (VITA). The VITA Program generally offers free tax help to people who make $50,000 or less and need assistance in preparing their own tax returns. IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation to qualified individuals in local communities. They can inform taxpayers about special tax credits for which they may qualify such as the Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, and Credit for the Elderly or the Disabled.

“I’m happy to bring this free service to the citizens in the 32nd Senate District and I commend the volunteers for their work,” said Senator McLeod.

Volunteer tax preparers require a valid photo ID, Social Security card or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITN) for all family members, all W-2s, 1098s, and 1099s (if any), a copy of your prior year’s tax return, other income/expense information, total expenses paid for child/day care, total tuition fees and expenses, day care providers’ identifying number, landlord’s name, address and phone number for the California Renter’s Credit.

No appointment is necessary. Tax filers can go to the Boys & Girls Club of Pomona Valley on Saturday, April 14, 2012 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This year the State and Federal deadline for filing your 2011 income taxes is April 17, 2011.
