SNHS supports free tax filing services

To help local working individuals and families attain financial stability, Southern New Hampshire Services-supported efforts are offering free income tax preparation in Hillsborough and Rockingham Counties this tax season to those with low-to-moderate incomes.

Southern New Hampshire Services works with a number of local coalitions in the coordination of sites available in their areas, including the Asset Building Coalition in Nashua and the Cash Coalition of Southeastern New Hampshire.

To receive free tax filing assistance, it is recommended that the total income per return cannot exceed $50,000 for tax year 2011, and must not include more than $3,150 in investment income.

Current listings of available free tax preparation sites are also available on-line. Use the following links to access this information from either the NH 2-1-1 database or the IRS database of free tax preparation sites.

These tax preparation services are provided by volunteers who are trained and certified on IRS-approved software. The volunteers will help filers prepare their 2011 federal income tax returns and determine whether they qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and other tax credits, such as the Child Tax Credit or Credit for the Elderly.

Volunteers file the returns electronically, which facilitates direct deposit of refunds into taxpayers’ bank accounts, usually within 10 days. To file taxes electronically on a Married Filing Jointly tax return, both spouses must be present to sign the required forms.

Many sites have multilingual volunteers who can assist people with limited English skills.

To locate the nearest site by phone, taxpayers can call 2-1-1 in New Hampshire or the IRS at 800-906-9887 for VITA site locations and 1-888-227-7669 for AARP Tax Aide site information.
