The new tool makes it easier than ever for qualified individuals to find free help through the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. Volunteers at VITA locations generally offer tax preparation for people with incomes of $50,000 or less free of charge. Find a VITA site near you by visiting http://1.usa.gov/AmfCj2.
AARP runs a locator tool for the Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) program, which provides free tax service for all taxpayers with priority assistance to taxpayers 60 and older. A TCE locator is available on the AARP site at http://www.aarp.org/.
