WCAC hosts two Volunteer Income Tax Assistance sites in Southbridge & Worcester
Worcester, Massachusetts - In 2019, the Worcester Free Tax Service Coalition is celebrating its 17th year of providing free tax preparation and asset building services to low income working taxpayers throughout Central Massachusetts! Through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, IRS-certified volunteers prepare taxes and specifically look for tax credits the household may be eligible for, such as the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), Child Tax Credit (CTC) and other credits. Utilizing the free tax preparation services allows families to retain their full refund, avoiding typical preparation fees which can often run into the hundreds of dollars.

Worcester Community Action Council, Inc.  is pleased to be host to two VITA sites:
WORCESTER: Denholm Building, Room 203, 484 Main Street, Worcester, MA 01608
Appointments available Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday 5 - 7 p.m.; Saturday 9 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Call 508-754-1176 x234  
SOUTHBRIDGE: 61 Pine Street, Southbridge, MA 01550
Appointments available Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday 5-7 p.m. 
Call 508-909-0061 x10

Additional information about additional VITA sites, EITC income eligibility as well as what information you should bring with you to an appointment is available on WCAC's website at
