Prepare your Federal and State Taxes for Free
Attention NOC students!
The MyFreeTaxes program is a national online free tax prepartion service staffed by a VITA Coordinator and NOC Accounting students. The income cap is $58,000 for individuals and families. VITA services are not only free, they are also a reliable and trusted source for preparing tax returns. All VITA volunteers who prepare returns must take and pass tax law training that meets or exceeds IRS standards. This training includes maintaining the privacy and confidentiality of all taxpayer information. In addition to requiring volunteers to certify their knowledge of the tax laws, the IRS requires a quality review check for every return prepared at a VITA site prior to filing. They also assist taxpayers with the preparation of Facilitated Self-Assistance returns..
