The Volunteer Income Tax Preparation Program is sponsored by the Hudson Valley Cash Coalition.


Volunteers are much needed and very welcome. To get certified:


We will provide you with training materials and access to the IRS online training program.


You may attend a 30-hour class at NECC in Millerton, in Millbrook or in Poughkeepsie.

You can take the test online or on paper.


We ask you to make a weekly commitment throughout the tax season - at least 2 hours a week.


For more information about volunteering for the VITA program, call us at NECC at (518)789-4259.


Free Income Tax Preparation

for low-income families, students and seniors - dial 2-1-1 to get your taxes done!

  • Are you paying a preparer hundreds of dollars to do your taxes?
  • Do you think you might not be getting all the credits you should?
  • Are you worried that you haven't filed your taxes recently?
  • Do you need to file for a tax i.d. number (ITIN?)

If the answer to any of those questions is yes, give us a call - we can prepare your tax returns - even if it's after April 15.

Our volunteer preparers are trained and certified by the IRS - we can do your 1040, file for education, child, earned income and other credits. We'll also do your New York and Connecticut returns, and e-file everything so you'll get your refund quickly.


It's a free service, available to famlies who earn under $50,000 a year.


To make a tax appointment at NECC any of the VITA or AARP sites around Dutchess County, call us at (518)789-4259 during business hours, or dial 2-1-1 any time.
