Northeast Iowa Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (NEIVITA)

Welcome to the Northeast Iowa VITA (NEIVITA) tax website
Deadline to submit your tax information to Northeast Iowa Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (NEIVITA) is Friday, April 9.
We hope you are doing well.  As you know, both the AARP Tax-Aide sites (Cresco, Decorah, and Postville) as well as the Waukon VITA site had to close suddenly last March due to Covid-19.  This was done to ensure the safety of both clients and volunteers.  It appears that we will be facing the same challenge again this year.  A number of changes have been made to allow us to continue to provide this valuable service to the community. 
This year income tax preparation will be done virtually.  The AARP sites have transitioned to VITA for 2020 and all four sites will be working together to provide you with the same services you received when we meet with you onsite, but the volunteers will be preparing your returns remotely. 
To make a tax appointment, call 563-277-7246.
