Montgomery County offers free tax help for income-eligible residents


Good news for income-eligible Montgomery County residents. Residents with household incomes of $64,000 or less can now schedule free tax appointments with the Community Action Agency's Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program.

The VITA program provides free tax help and connects residents with tax credits that can provide critical support to households. These credits include the state and federal Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), the county’s Working Families Income Supplement (WFIS), and Child Tax Credits, which have the potential to add thousands of dollars in tax refunds for individuals and their families.

Appointments are available Jan. 22 through April 11 at four locations in Montgomery County:

  • Casey Community Center, 810 South Frederick Avenue, Gaithersburg, Mondays, 2:30 to 8 p.m.
  • TESS Community Action Center, 8730 Flower Avenue, Silver Spring, Tuesdays, 2 to 8 p.m.
  • Community Action Agency, 1401 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Tuesdays, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Community Action Agency, 1401 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Wednesdays, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
  • WorkSource Montgomery, 11510 Georgia Avenue, Wheaton, Fridays, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., virtual appointments only

Taxpayers who file with an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN), assistance with ITIN applications will also be available at the Community Action VITA site at 1401 Rockville Pike, Suite 320, on Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Eligible residents should call 240-777-1123 to schedule an appointment or visit the CASHBACK website for more information.
