Free Tax Preparation Program Available at Henry F. Schricker Library


Starke County residents may be able to get some free help preparing this year’s income taxes. The Henry F. Schricker Public Library in Knox is hosting a Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program.

Certified volunteers will prepare and e-file federal and state tax returns for qualified residents. These include people making $54,000 or less, those with disabilities, the elderly, and those speaking limited amounts of English.

Appointments are available every Wednesday from noon until 7:00 p.m. between now and April 6. You can also schedule appointments on some Saturdays, including tomorrow, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

The program is funded locally by a grant from the Northwest Indiana Community Action Agency and the Internal Revenue Service.

To schedule an appointment, call the library’s Reference Department at 574-772-7323 ext. 1005. Click here for more information on the VITA program and a list of what to bring to your appointment.
