“I was very happy at how easy and stress-free the whole process of preparing your taxes was. Due to the pandemic, we filed our taxes through the website. The process is user-friendly. They are always there for you by phone/email from beginning to end until your taxes are completed and submitted to the IRS. This is an excellent free tax service for the community and I highly recommend it.” — Tania Z.

“Many Connecticut families deeply affected by the COVID-19 crisis are unfortunately not receiving the financial support they are entitled to by the CARES stimulus, Pandemic Unemployment Assistance, or other government programs. I applaud the work that VITA is doing to get our citizens the financial help they need and deserve.”  — Governor Ned Lamont
