If you made less than $54,000 in 2015, then you’re eligible for some free assistance with filing your tax returns through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program.
According to a Prince William County government release, tax experts from VITA will be at the Ferlazzo Building at 15741 Donald Curtis Drive in Woodbridge every Saturday until April 11 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. to assist.
There will also be tax preparers at the Prince William SkillSource Center at 13370 Minnieville Road in Woodbridge every Monday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. until April 18, stated a release.
Last year, the program helped 187 people in Prince William, according to a release.
“We helped these clients to bring back a total of $284,197 in federal refunds,” stated Northern Virginia VITA Program Coordinator James Do in a release.

People should come prepared with their W2s, 1099s or any other relevant tax forms; Social Security cards for themselves and their dependents or a taxpayer identification number for every working member of the family; a photo ID; any relevant bank statements; a voided check for direct deposit; expense documents; and proof of health insurance, Ware said.
