The Oak Ridge Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA) is now in its fourth decade of helping community residents to complete and file tax returns.
The 2021 VITA Tax Center will open on Tuesday, February 9, and it is again located at the United Way of Anderson County at 728 Emory Valley Road. The Center will be open from Tuesday through Saturday. The new operating hours are from 1-6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday. There will be no evening hours.
For the safely of both taxpayers and volunteers, the Center will be operating on a virtual basis with no face-to-face contact, a press release said. IRS paperwork with instructions will be available outside of the United Way entrance. Taxpayers will complete the paperwork and return it along with all required forms to the designated container at the United Way. IRS certified volunteers will be available to complete tax returns. Paperwork can be picked up and returned ONLY during VITA Tax Center operating hours, the press release said.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
