Free Tax Prep
United Way of Williamson County’s Free Tax Prep (also known as VITA) in partnership with the Internal Revenue Service is a national program staffed by local IRS-certified volunteers to provide free preparation and electronic filing of income tax returns to households that earned $66,000 or less in 2017. Volunteers also educate taxpayers about tax credits for which they may qualify such as the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), Child Tax Credit, American Opportunity Credit, etc. The traditional sites are held at the Williamson County Public Library in Franklin, the historic Triangle School in Fairview, GraceWorks Ministries in Franklin and FiftyForward Senior Center in College Grove starting at the end of January through mid-April.
