[ARCHIVED] Orange County offers free tax help with 2021 Income Tax Returns

Orange County Department on Aging’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA) is continuing to assist low and moderate-income taxpayers with tax preparation services. VITA services are free to those that have incomes below $70,000 for a single person or $100,000 for a household. The deadline for filing 2021 income taxes is now April 18, 2022.

We are offering a Valet Tax Preparation Service that will provide service for the remainder of March, ending the first week in April.  Taxpayers with scheduled appointments, can bring in their tax documents and complete the intake paperwork at the Seymour Center (walk-in services are not available).  Our VITA tax team members will scan and upload your documents and IRS-certified preparers will contact you by phone to prepare and electronically file your return.   Appointments will be scheduled to sign and pick-up the completed returns.

Valet Days and Times:

Seymour Center – 2551 Homestead Road, Chapel Hill:

  • Thursdays, 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. (March 24, 31 and April 7)
  • Fridays, 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. (March 25 and April 1, 8)

Alternatively, if you have internet access, an active email account, and either a computer and scanner or a cell phone with a camera, you can participate in our Virtual VITA program.  Check our website or send an email to for more information.
