Denton County residents in need of tax help can receive free assistance.

United Way of Denton County’s free tax preparation program provides trained volunteers who will help taxpayers file their federal income taxes. The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program is available to taxpayers who earned up to $60,000 last year.

This year’s program began in late January and will run through Tax Day on April 18. IRS-certified volunteers will be available to help taxpayers at six Denton County sites, including the Lewisville Public Library. Virtual services are not offered at this time.

“This program is a vital resource for struggling households who we refer to as ALICE—asset limited, income-constrained, employed,” President and CEO Gary Henderson said in a press release. “Our VITA volunteers are a key component in our focus to create economic mobility for households who often live paycheck to paycheck. Maximizing their full tax refund while saving them hundreds in tax preparation and filing fees sets them up for success in 2023.”

Taxpayers must bring the following documents:
  • Social Security card or ITIN Card/letter for everyone on the tax return;
  • Photo ID with name for taxpayer and spouse;
  • Employment and other income-related tax documents; and
  • Any other official tax-related documents or IRS letters.
