BALTIMORE — Loyola University Maryland is offering free tax preparation services.

It will go through early April at the Loyola Clinical Centers on York Road in Belvedere Square.

IRS-certified student volunteers from Loyola will prepare and e-file tax returns at no cost to qualifying taxpayers in the Baltimore community.

This is the second year Loyola will host a site offering free tax preparation services. The services are made possible through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistant (VITA) program, sponsored by the nonprofit Creating Assets, Savings and Hope (CASH) Campaign of Maryland.

Loyola has participated in the program for years, but in the past, students volunteered at other sites.

In 2019, Loyola’s VITA site prepared more than 200 returns and facilitated more than $300,000 in refunds to members of the local community.

The free tax return services are available to people who make $56,000 or less, people with disabilities and people with limited English language skills who need assistance preparing their tax returns.
