Tax Preparation

Filing your state and federal income taxes, small business taxes, Renter Credit, and Property Tax Adjustments can be confusing. That’s why our Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program is here to help families or individuals who make $60,000 or less.

Our trained volunteers and paid staff help you file during our normal tax season, or can help if you did not get a chance to file after tax season is over. If you have received a confusing letter from the IRS, haven’t filed taxes in a few years, or forgot to file a property tax adjustment claim, we can assist you at no cost.

We help thousands of Vermonters each year claim their refunds and credits and help put millions of dollars back into our communities.

Schedule an Appointment

*Beginning January 17, 2023 taxpayers may call 211 to schedule a tax appointment and request paperwork.  Taxpayers may schedule their appointment at Capstone's Barre, Morrisville or Randolph office. 

VITA Volunteers will start preparing tax returns the week of February 6, 2023.

Full instructions will be in the mailing, but please note the process for 2023:

  • Call 211 for an appointment
  • Fill out your paperwork
  • Bring paperwork, ID and all tax docs to the brief, in-person appointment. Masks required.
  • VITA volunteer will prepare return remotely and call taxpayer when it is ready to be picked up – approximately two weeks later.

Become a Volunteer

You don’t need to be a tax expert or a math whiz to be a VITA program volunteer. From answering the doors and helping folks fill out forms, to filing taxes, we provide yearly training to become an IRS certified volunteer. Whether you’re a student, working full time, or retired, there’s a place for you as a volunteer.
