Free Tax Assistance Offered

You are here

We know taxes can be tough, especially for people who aren't sure which deductions they qualify for, whose first language isn’t English, or who have trouble because of their age or a disability. The NC 2-1-1 Asheville Center can connect you to more than 18,000 services throughout the state including financial education and tax preparation assistance.

  • Through the Voluntary Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, State Employees Credit Union can help you file a free tax return if you have a 2014 household income of $57,000 or less. Walk-in to any branch of SECU in Buncombe County, drop off your tax information and a volunteer will complete in three business days. The last day to drop off is Friday, April 10. More information can be found on NC 2-1-1's website.
  • Four AARP Tax Aide sites are open throughout Buncombe County on a walk-in basis on different days through April 15. Sites are located in Black Mountain, Downtown Asheville, Weaverville and West Asheville. The Council on Aging of Buncombe County is a sponsor of these sites.
  • OnTrack WNC will be taking appointments starting February 16 for families with household incomes for 2014 of $53,000 or below.

If you are unable to visit one the sites listed above and have a 2014 household income of $57,000 or less, you can file online for free at
