Free Tax Services at Single Stop

Single Stop Tax Services

Delgado Community College Single Stop Program is offering its eleventh year of tax preparation services through its Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program to the Delgado community and surrounding metro area beginning Tuesday, January 18, 2022 through Friday, April 8, 2022.

We will continue to assist our customers in preparing their tax returns electronically using a Virtual Drop-off process instead of face-to-face contact. IRS certified volunteers will still provide free basic income tax preparation with electronic filing and direct deposit of refunds to qualified individuals. 

Customers that want to have their taxes prepared will need to drop off all tax return information in the designated lock box located outside the Single Stop Office, at Delgado’s City Park Campus in Building 2, Room 108A on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.  You may drop off your tax return information beginning Tuesday, January 18, 2022 through Wednesday, April 6, 2022. It is imperative that you include copies of your photo IDs and Social Security cards for you and all other dependents being claimed on your tax return.
