Stay Updated. Stay Current. Sign-Up Alerts

IT'S TAX TIME!  Call now to make an appointment:  913-684-0777.
The IRS's Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) and Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) programs offer free basic tax return preparation to qualified individuals.

The VITA program has operated for over 50 years, offering free tax help to:
  • People who meet the specified income requirements
  • Persons with disabilities; and
  • Persons who are 60 years or older

who need assistance in preparing their own tax returns.  Council on Aging team members specialize in questions about pensions and retirement-related issues unique to seniors

VITA/TCE services are not only free, they are also a reliable and trusted source for preparing tax returns. All VITA/TCE volunteers who prepare returns must take and pass tax law training that meets or exceeds IRS standards. This training includes maintaining the privacy and confidentiality of all taxpayer information. In addition to requiring volunteers to certify their knowledge of the tax laws, the IRS requires a quality review check for every return prepared at a VITA/TCE site prior to filing. 

Taxes are prepared by appointment only.  Please contact the Council on Aging office @ 913-684-0777 to see if you qualify and to ask any questions you might have about the VITA or TCE Tax Programs.
