DSS helps Wilson families save money

Immediate Release

January 9, 2013 - Wilson County’s VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) is gearing up again for tax season. This is the 9th year that volunteers are busy preparing to provide free tax preparation services for low-to-moderate income families in our community.

The DSS VITA site has specific goals to provide outreach and education to working families about the Earned Income Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit and to continue the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance site to provide free tax preparation for families with income levels $51,000 or less.

"Each year we hear from so many families that saved money by using this service," said Amber Denning, VITA coordinator. "Our VITA program provides free tax preparation and information on savings, asset building, homeownership programs, and much more."

The DSS Career Plus VITA site continues to receive high reviews from customers for the services provided. DSS staff volunteers, along with Barton College and Wilson Community College volunteers are trained by the Internal Revenue Service and provide free electronic filing.

Services will take place at the Career Plus office, 114 Pine St., NE, Wilson, NC.
