Tax processing (generic)

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The tax season officially started on Monday, Jan. 28, and Louisville leaders are offering free help to some residents.

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program provides IRS-certified volunteers to offer free tax services at 17 sites across the city. The service is available to people or families who made less than $64,000 last year.

The VITA campaign and Louisville AARP sites processed more than 14,000 returns in 2018.

"Tax preparation services make a really significant difference in the lives of low- to moderate-income members of our community," said Brittany Sims, a spokeswoman for the program. "VITA is a resource that helps families build financial stability by allowing them to keep 100 percent of their tax refund in their pocket."
