Taxpayers: we can help you! Springfield Partners’ Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program will be preparing returns at no cost through April 18 for community members with incomes at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines (click on the chart below to enlarge). Monday through Saturday 9am-3pm by appointment only. Call us to make your appointment as soon as possible: 413-263-6500.

Important Information: Even if we have prepared taxes for you in past years, new IRS regulations mean that our VOLUNTEERS can no longer look up information from past years in the system. Also, we cannot prepare your tax return without a valid driver's license or photo ID and an original Social Security card. IRS rules prevent us from accepting copies.

"...we have to box clever in the margins, and make the most of what we have."

Sadly, Springfield is in a deep pocket of poverty— through a low-income base and high unemployment, which keeps communities in a long-term economically vulnerable position. This cycle of poverty impacts the ability of a person to function in society, and has a domino effect on issues such as homelessness and malnutrition.
