Karen Burris first came to get help going to school. They put her through school and helped her get her CNA license and medication administration license. Now, she’s back to get her taxes done for free. 

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) is doing taxes for free for those who make under $52,000 dollars a year. AARP has no income restriction. All that is needed is basic information and most taxes are filed within 30 minutes taxes. VITA does E-Filing, so you don’t have to do anything else with your returns.

Many people came in concerned about health care taxes and state deductions. Neither go into effect until 2014.

“They try to get as much back for you as they can with your tax return," Burris said. "They go through all the avenues they can get you so you can get the best return back."

Volunteer Larry Davis says individuals can do taxes by themselves, but he doesn’t advise it. Since Charlotte is filled with transplants, Davis says he can help with your taxes from other states.

Davis has been an accountant for more than 40 years and had to go through a rigorous process to become certified for this program. He hopes to earn between $500,000 and $600,000 for people within Gaston County.
