The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program has returned for its second year to help people with a household income of $49,000 or less.
The event is presented in conjunction with the University of Georgia's local Extension Agency, Moultrie Technical College, and the Moultrie YMCA, and coordinators say refunds are already on their way back to the community.
Extension Agent Andrea Scarrow says the program was open for its third day today (1/31) and has already claimed $28,000 in earned income tax credits and $10,000 in child credits.
Last year VITA brought over $100,000 back to Colquitt County.
Coordinators say the event is supervised by trained professionals, and aided by MTC tax preparation students so they can receive hands-on training with real returns.
Services will be available at the Moultrie YMCA on the following dates:
February 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 10, and 12.
For more information, call the YMCA at (229) 985-1154.
Spanish-speaking tax preparers are available.
