Day and evening appointments to sit down with a tax prep volunteer are available by calling 1-800-211-5128 ext 100. Appointments are available 9am-4pm beginning Jan. 6, 2014.

Through this program you can get faster returns and free electronic filing. Direct deposit for both Federal and State returns is an option.

Tax returns with stock sales, business or rental income are not eligible for this program.
