Free Tax Preparation

About the Program

WCMCA operates a Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) clinic starting at the end of January through mid-April each year that provides free tax preparation services to income eligible MN residents. Volunteer tax preparers have been provided required training and have passed IRS testing for VITA certification. Each year, our volunteers assist hundreds of low-income, working families secure their tax credits which in turn provides an economic boom to our local community!

Attention: Drop-off Appointments will be available in Glenwood, Elbow Lake, Morris and Wheaton only; not available in Alexandria. Drop-off taxes are second priority to in-person appointments. The preparers will call you when your drop-off tax return is complete.
