United Way of Greater Richmond & Petersburg has launched a tax preparation assistance program for families trying to achieve financial stability.
The program offers both in-person tax sites and virtual tax assistance service. Both are free. A team of IRS-certified tax preparers and volunteers are on hand to help families in Richmond, Goochland, Chesterfield, Henrico, and Hanover whose household income is under $64,000.
There are 11 in-person tax preparation sites throughout the greater Richmond area. For Spanish or Portuguese-speaking families, the Sacred Heart Center in Richmond is available.
There is also a do-it-yourself option — individuals making up to $73,000 can email United Way for free coaching from an IRS-certified volunteer.
