HENDERSON, Ky. -- Henderson County's Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program is looking for volunteers to help with the preparation of income tax returns in the spring.
Last year, volunteers in the VITA program were able to help nearly 1,000 people in Henderson County get their taxes prepared for free and deposited nearly $1 million in local banks from returns.
Some details about the coming year's program:
-- The Henderson County VITA site is located at the Housing Authority of Henderson, 111 S. Adams St. Site hours are 3 to 7 p.m. Monday and Tuesday evenings and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon.
-- Opening day for tax preparation is Saturday, Feb. 3, and the final day is Saturday, April 14.
-- There will be a certification training session on Monday, Jan. 15, at Henderson Community College. The training lasts all day. Other dates can be substituted and the training also can be done online.
