Free volunteer tax preparation services will be available from the Winston County VITA site.

Volunteers will be helping people with incomes of $49,000 or less to prepare and file electronically their federal and state tax returns.

This tax site was developed through collaboration between the IRS, Mayor Robinson of Double Springs and Mayor Sunseri of Haleyville.

Benita Wilson, Senior Tax Consultant with the IRS said, “More workers could be eligible for a special tax credit this year and not know it.  Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) is a financial boost for working people hit by hard economic times. This is money that can make their lives a little easier, especially families with three or more children who may get an extra boost with a larger credit.”

To help accurately determine their EITC eligibility and prepare their returns, individuals should bring:

  • Photo proof of identification
  • Social Security cards for themselves, their spouse and dependents or Social Security number verification letters issued by the Social Security Administration
  • Birth dates for all persons listed on the tax return
  • Wage and earning statement(s) Forms W-2, W-2G, and 1099-R, from all employers
  • Interest and dividend statements from banks (Forms 1099)
  • Copies of last year's federal and state returns, if available
  • Bank routing and account numbers for direct deposit of their refunds
  • Other relevant information about income and expenses
  • Amounts paid for day care, if applicable and the day care provider's identifying number.

Assistance is available by appointment only. Haleyville residents should call 486-3532 to make an appointment.
