Forsyth Free Tax, a program of Experiment in Self-Reliance (ESR), is a part of the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program in which qualified volunteers prepare taxes for free for people making $54,000 a year or less. Forsyth Free Tax also offers online tax services at www.myfreetaxes.com to individuals making less than $64,000 who want to self-prepare their taxes. Community sites are available throughout Forsyth County to provide free tax preparation services during tax season. The filing deadline is April 18, 2017. April 18 is also the last day to file a 2013 federal income tax return. The IRS estimates more than $1 billion may be available for close to 1 million people who have not filed a 2013 federal income tax return. The IRS gives taxpayers a three year window to claim any refund before it becomes property of the treasury. For a complete list of tax sites and what to bring, visit www.forsythfreetax.org.
