The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program at College of the Canyons will be offering free tax preparation services to individuals who made less than $67,000 in 2023, persons with disabilities, and those with limited English-speaking skills.
Free income tax preparation services will be available to qualified individuals/families every Saturday from Feb. 10 through April 13.
“Our community members’ financial well-being is important to us, and we are committed to providing support to qualified individuals and families,” said Ali Naddafpour, a business and accounting instructor at the college.
The COC-VITA volunteer program is sponsored by the IRS and designed to help low- to moderate-income households. COC-VITA volunteers include community members and COC students from a wide range of academic disciplines. Volunteers work under the supervision of experienced tax practitioners to assist with quality review.

Individual sessions may run up to two-and-a-half hours in length. While walk-ins are welcome, appointments are strongly recommended.
