Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA)

Hempstead Town's VITA Program helps senior citizens prepare their federal and state income tax returns and secure every penny of the refunds to which they are entitled. It's time to take advantage of the FREE service presented with our Department of Senior Enrichment's volunteer tax assistants. Residents with annual incomes of $60,000 or less* who wish to participate in the program must bring last year's tax return (2016), all wage, Social Security and earnings statements (W-2 and 1099, and 1095, if applicable), all interest, dividend, capital gains, IRAs, annuities and pension statements, 2017 property tax receipts, STAR exemption records, social security cards and photo identifications of all those filing tax returns. The deadline for filing individual tax returns this year is April 17, 2018. Please note that VITA preparers are volunteers and are not required to prepare complicated returns. 

*As per IRS guidelines, senior citizens and residents with annual incomes of $60,000 or less are eligible to be served by the VITA Program.
