Pathfinder VITA offers free tax preparation

Posted: Friday, January 11, 2019

Pathfinder HomeOwnership Center, the Community Development division of Pathfinder Services, will again be providing free tax preparation assistance to those who made less than $55,000 in 2018. My free taxes kiosks will also be available for those with an income up to $66,000 in 2018.

This year marks the tenth anniversary for the Volunteer Income Tax Preparation (VITA) program to be offered through Pathfinder Services. This year the service will be offered in Huntington, North Manchester and Wabash. The Pathfinder HomeOwnership Center will begin this service on Monday, January 21 and the service will run through Friday, April 12. A drop-off option is also available.

For those who wish to work one-on-one with a certified IRS preparer to file both state and federal taxes for free in any location, call (260) 355-2510 or email taxservice@pathfinderservices.org to make an appointment.  Appointments are limited and are on a first come, first served basis.

Free tax preparation will be offered in Huntington at the Huntington City-Township Public Library, in North Manchester at the Town Life Center and in Wabash at the YMCA. The hours for each location vary, but evening and Saturday appointments may be available.

Funders and sponsors of the free tax preparation program include NeighborWorks America, United Way of Huntington County, Rural LISC, PNC, Huntington City-Township Public Library, Community Foundation of Wabash County, Wabash County United Fund, United Way of Wabash County and Wabash County YMCA.
