Tax Assistance

Free VITA Tax Clinic

Through the IRS' Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program, Community Action Partnership of Hennepin County (CAP-HC) provides FREE basic tax return preparation for 2023 tax returns to eligible individuals and families. IRS tax law-certified volunteers prepare and e-file federal, state, and property taxes. Tax assistance is provided in person at Southdale Library (7001 York Ave. S. Edina, MN 55435).

2023 Tax Filing Assistance is Currently Closed

Our VITA program is closed for the 2023 tax season as of April 12, 2024, and we are no longer processing taxes or rental rebates. Updates for next year's VITA season will be added once they are available.    

Here are a few additional resources if you still need help filing your taxes:

Earned Income Tax Credit

The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) helps low- to moderate-income workers and families get a tax break. If you qualify, you can use the credit to reduce the taxes you owe – and maybe increase your refund. The amount of your credit may change if you have children, dependents, are disabled, or meet other criteria. Using this credit may affect other government benefits for some types of workers, like the military and clergy. If you claim the EITC credit, your refund may be delayed. By law, refunds to taxpayers who claim the Earned Income Tax will not begin until mid-February.

For more about EITC, visit the IRS website.

The IRS has created an EITC qualification assistant to help you find out if you qualify and estimate your credit amount.
