Tax Help is Here

Tax season is upon us, but it doesn’t have to be painful. If your household made $49,000 or less in 2012, you could have your taxes prepared at no cost through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program coordinated by the Food Bank’s Atlanta Prosperity Campaign and the IRS. Learn more and find a tax site near you.
