ESR’s Forsyth Free Tax program provides free tax preparation to people with low-moderate income.
If you make less than $57,000, you can have your taxes prepared for free through volunteer sites. Taxes are prepared by volunteers who are trained by IRS staff members. Volunteers use IRS-approved software for return preparation. Trained volunteers prepare and electronically file your tax return. If you are due a refund, you can usually expect to receive it within ten days of filing. VITA sites file most simple returns. Check to make sure you qualify by contacting ESR’s Tax Team. The team can be reached at (336) 722-9400 x 4.
