COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

It'sthat time of year again to get your paper work together and start filing taxes.  If doingyour taxes yourself is something you do not feel comfortable with, the Chattahoochee Valley VITA Coalition can help.

VITA, Volunteer Income Tax Assistance, hasbeen active in the valley for about 8 years.

Theprogram's goal is to help families that make under $51,000 a year preparetheir taxes for free.

Lerone Harper, with the Consumer Credit Counseling Service, explains why everyone whoqualifies should take advantage of this free service. "I think it's something thatpeople should take advantage of because we not only prepare yourtaxes as a coalition, but we try to make sure that you have you haveyour questions answered."

Thevolunteers who  help with your taxes are trained by the IRS. Justlast year they brought in over 3 million people right here in the valley.
