Free income tax services are available for Central Piedmont students, faculty, and staff until April 15 through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA). Qualified participants earn $64,000 per year or less.
Eligible individuals are able to participate in two ways, through a Virtual Intake Center or by sitting down in person with a VITA trained tax preparer.
Virtual Intake Sites allow participants to bring the tax documents to a designated location where the tax documents will be uploaded through a secure server, and prepared by a trained VITA tax preparer.
Virtual Intake Sites are available at Cato Campus, Building III, and Room 118 and at Harper Campus, Harper 4, Room 218. Learn more here.
