Goodwill offering free tax preparation

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Goodwill Career Centers will offer free tax preparation beginning Tuesday, Jan. 23.

Goodwill partnered with the River Valley Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Coalition to continue free tax preparation for families with incomes of $54,000 or less in 2017.

Services will be available Tuesday through Saturday. Tax preparation at Phenix City and Midland career centers are available by appointment only.

Walk-ins are welcome and will be serviced on a first come, first served basis. A form of I.D. and W-2 forms are required to have taxes prepared.

"If they're looking in the career center right now and saying I didn't know this existed, come and see us. We're not just about providing opportunity to get your taxes done free, but we also have job fairs and G.E.D. classes and other opportunities for people to advance their careers so that they can become more stable as a family," says Denise Eckley, manager of Goodwill Career Center-Midtown.
