CCAP’s VITA Preparation Assistance Program is a FREE Tax Assistance service for low-income workers , we provide FREE tax preparation for individuals and families earning less than $60,000.
Last year, CCAP’s VITA program filed over 1000 federal tax returns, helping Rhode Island families receive $2 million in refunds without any cost. Our volunteers are trained and certified by the IRS and will help you file your federal and state income taxes. IRS e-file is the most accurate, safest, and fastest way to file your tax return. You can get your refund in as little as 10 days.
The Earned Income Tax Credit – EITC or EIC – is a refundable tax credit aimed at helping families with low-to-moderate earned income. The #EITC can add an average of $2,460 to an IRS refund for eligible workers. Families may qualify for the #EITC for the first time due to a change in circumstances. Let us help you get all the available tax credits and deductions you deserve.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, all returns will be done via drop off, please call 401-467-7013 for more information.Learn More
