Tax help is at the library! The American Fork Library is partnering with United Way to help area residents with their taxes. The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program sends certified volunteers to the library every Wednesday from
5-8 pm until April 15. To qualify, VITA requires you fit one of these categories: you are a senior citizen, you live with a disability, you have limited English language skills, or your income is under $56,000. Appointments are necessary, just go to utahtaxhelp.org or call 211 to schedule an appointment.
We are always happy to help you if you need assistance signing up. Call or stop by and we'll see what we can do!
