WE DO TAXES
The Cooperative Ministry’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program provides free income tax assistance to thousands of individuals and families with a household income of $60,000 or less. IRS-trained and certified volunteers serve at 18 locations across the greater Midlands to help participants receive all of the tax credits and deductions for which they are eligible.
Returns are filed electronically, and with direct deposit, refunds are deposited in 7-10 days.
The 2020 VITA Tax Preparation season will begin on Saturday, Feb. 1, 2020, with the annual Super Saturday event, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at The Cooperative Ministry, 3821 W. Beltline Blvd, Columbia, SC 29204.
