GREAT FALLS — The Great Falls Senior Center is hosting free tax service help beginning on Monday, January 25th.

Tax Help Montana, a Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, partnered with Rural Dynamics, a credit counseling service in Great Falls.

Together at the Great Falls Senior Center, they are offering free walk-in tax preparation services for low and medium-income families that need helping filing their taxes.

“This is our 17th year with our Tax Help Montana program and providing free tax preparation for anybody that has a household income of less than $56,000 a year or if they are 60 years of age or older,” explained Jordyn Rodgers, deputy director of Rural Dynamics.

The services will be offered on Mondays, Fridays, and Saturdays starting on January 25th and will continue through April 12th, the Monday before the Tax Day deadline.

“We really hope people will come file their federal and state taxes for free with us,” said Rodgers.

The 2021 tax filing season will begin on February 12th, and the deadline to file those tax returns will be on Thursday, April 15th.

People that use the service will need to bring all necessary tax paperwork with them, and should plan on giving volunteers at least an hour to help them.
