For the 16th consecutive year, there will be a Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) site operating during this tax filing season at the Nichols Library branch of the Naperville Public Library (200 W Jefferson St, Naperville). The program is designed to benefit individuals and families of low-to-moderate income who would like help in completing their 2012 Federal and Illinois state income tax returns. This IRS-affiliated VITA site is sponsored by the Notre Dame Club of Greater DuPage, North Central College, and Benedictine University. The aim of the program is to ensure that eligible taxpayers receive the tax benefits that have been created to aid lower income families. Last year, the site's clients filed for over $150,000 in income tax refunds with the assistance of our volunteers.

The VITA program in Naperville is staffed by business students from North Central College and Benedictine University, who must complete training and IRS certification in order to qualify as tax preparers. The program is overseen by accounting professionals along with instructors from these two local schools.

Those who are interested in receiving help with the preparation of their 2012 Federal and Illinois State tax returns should bring proof of identification and tax information such as: W-2 forms, 1099 forms, property tax bill, copies of last year's tax returns, bank routing and account numbers for direct deposit of refunds, and any other relevant income and expense information.

Families and individuals with incomes up to $51,000 are eligible to participate.

This year's VITA program will operate on the following dates: February 23 and March 2, 9 and 23 from 9:00 AM until Noon.

Those with questions should call Mike Domagola of the Notre Dame Club at (630)-717-0439 for more information.
