Taxes


The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program offers free basic tax preparation services to qualified individuals.

This free service is available to residents of Stearns, Benton, and Sherburne counties with an income of $58,000 or less

 

The tax program is a volunteer run service provided in the community. We expect all volunteers to be treated with respect and for all taxpayers to be patient as we navigate tax returns during the COVID-19 pandemic. If volunteers are treated in a disrespectful manner, we reserve the right to deny the tax prep service.

Beginning January 19, 2022 you may make tax appointments online with the link that will be provided

Beginning January 26, 2022 you may call our office at 320-251-1612 to schedule tax appointments
