Southern Tier CA$H program
Arbor Housing and Development administers the Southern Tier CA$H program, a VITA tax program offering free tax preparation for families that earned less than $54,000 If you file your own taxes, you can miss out on valuable tax credits that can lower the amount you owe or increase your refund -- credits such as the Earned Income Tax Credit for low-income workers with "earned" income-wages or income from a small business. CA$H volunteers can prepare both your federal and state tax returns, and help you find tax credits for which you are eligible.
It's free! Using a paid preparer can cost $250 or more per person; the CA$H program costs nothing.
It's fast! By e-filing and having your refund direct-deposited, you will receive your money quicker.
It's convenient! CA$H appointments are available at sites across the Southern Tier, and at times that work for you.
It's accurate! CA$H volunteers are trained by IRS-approved specialists and must complete certification tests before completing any returns.
