Our tax preparers are certified to prepare a variety of tax returns, including Schedule Cs, itemized returns, and Schedule Ds. However, due to IRS regulations for VITA sites, we are unable to prepare tax returns with the following characteristics:

  • Rental property income or expenses
  • Minister tax returns with parsonage/housing allowance
  • Taxpayers with dual citizenship
  • Mortgage Assistance Payments (Form 1098-MA)
  • Schedule C with:
    • Business use of home
    • Net losses
    • Expenses for employees or contract labor
    • Cost of goods sold (inventory)

This is not a comprehensive list; depending on the documentation provided at the time of your appointment, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to prepare and file your tax return.



The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) is a refundable tax credit for low to moderate income working individuals and couples, particularly those with children. Through its VITA program, United Way is working to help all families receive what they are due. In addition to being a financial boost for working people, the EITC boosts the local economy. Research has shown that the EITC encourages work, reduces poverty and leads to long-term gains in child health and academic success.
