  • Need help filing your taxes? VITA has gone VIRTUAL!

    VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) is 100% virtual.

    There are two ways VITA can help you this year.

    1. 100% virtual: This method requires a phone that can take pictures of your documents or a scanner at home. Fill out your information and VITA will contact you to begin tax prep. https://getyourrefund.org/ffldlibr.

    2. Make a 20-minute appointment to have a VITA counselor scan your documents in person. You must have all your tax documents ready before you make an appointment. Book an appointment at the library using this link: http://bit.ly/FPLScan2021. Fairfield Public Library scanning appointments are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2-4pm and 5-7pm. You must have an appointment before you come to the library.
