In order to keep our clients and staff safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have MODIFIED our 2020 Free Tax Prep program.
As of March 20, the IRS has extended the income tax filing deadline by 90 days to July 15, 2020. Tax returns and payments owed are not due until July 15.
If you still need to file a 2019 tax return, WCA is preparing returns virtually and using a minimal contact method of preparation at our Greensburg location ONLY (226 S. Maple Avenue). The hours are Mondays and Wednesdays from 4 pm – 8 pm from June 10, 2020 through July 15, 2020.
The first step to getting your taxes prepared by WCA is to fill out the online intake form (click here for the link). Once you have completed the form, click SUBMIT and you will be put into the system. Our VITA Coordinator will review your information and call you to make an appointment. If you don’t hear from her after 7 days, you can then call 412-368-2273 to schedule an appointment.
PLEASE BE PATIENT AS WE WORK THROUGH SCHEDULING BACK-DATED APPOINTMENTS. We will be contacting taxpayers in the order of cancelled appointments first before we begin scheduling new appointments.
If you would rather file your 2019 tax return yourself, Free File through TurboTax is a great option. Get TurboTax here. Before you get started, check out these basic instructions for using TurboTax.
Starting January 27, 2020, in partnership with the IRS, our Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) sites will provide FREE income tax return preparation for those making under $55,000…
- Taxpayers who have limited or moderate incomes
- Senior citizens
- Persons with disabilities
In addition, you may be eligible for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). The new maximum credit is $6,557 for a family with three or more children, $5,828 for a family with two children, $3,526 for a family with one child, and $529 if there are no children.
Call 2-1-1 to schedule your appointment! Or call 888-553-5778 if 2-1-1 does not work from your phone. (At the moment, DO NOT call 2-1-1. They are not taking VITA appointments at this time.)
All tax returns will be completed on-line and filed electronically. This program is funded by the United Way of Southwestern PA.
