VITA program helping people file their taxes

If you haven’t filed your taxes yet you still have plenty of time.

Western Technical College partnered with the Great Rivers United Way and Consumer Credit Counseling Services Saturday to help people file their taxes.

Anyone who made less than $64,000 last year was able to receive help for free through the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program.

Experts were on hand Saturday to walk people through the steps, ensuring that their taxes will be filled properly.

“Who should have to pay to get their money back so free services like this are helping them learn about resources that are available to their file their taxes for free,” said Kari Reyburn, community engagement coordinator at Wisconsin Technical College.

You have until April 18 to do your taxes.
