Those eligible for assistance are senior citizens, disabled citizens, those who speak limited English and individuals with an income of $30,000 or less ($50,000 or less for families).

The VITA program offers free tax assistance to low-to-moderate income individuals who cannot prepare their own tax returns.

The TCE program is sponsored by Tax-Aide and supported by the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) and offers free tax assistance to the same individuals with special attention to those 60 and older.

All volunteers are certified by the IRS and prepare basic tax returns in communities throughout Minnesota.

The sites are generally open now through April 15. To find a local site, hours and dates, and a complete list of items to bring when visiting a site, taxpayers should visit www.revenue.state.mn.us.

The department's website allows taxpayers to search for a location.

Taxpayers can also call (651) 297-3724 or 1-800-657-3989 to search for a site by zip code.
