GRANTHAM — Messiah College is partnering with the United Way of the Capital Region to offer two free community tax services.

One tax service is a free tax website,, which helps prepare and e-file federal and state income tax returns online. Anyone with income less than $58,000 is eligible to use the online tax service. A toll-free certified Helpline volunteer will also be available to answer questions while filing the returns online.

The other service is a part of the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program, which consists of IRS-certified Messiah College students, who will provide free tax preparation services to individuals and families with total income of less than $52,000.

Students, with supervision, will prepare federal, state and local income tax returns in Frey Hall Academic Building, Room 156, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday evenings from now until April 15, with a break on March 18. No appointment is needed.
