LifeStyles is a nonprofit organization that supports people in crisis by providing emergency assistance and through partnerships provides referrals for health and human service needs. Located in Southern Maryland, LifeStyles is a “one stop shop” of social and community programs.
Our Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program provides free federal and state tax preparation services for households whose total income is $54,000 or less. Tax services are provided by IRS-certified tax preparers, who rotate to various mobile sites throughout Southern Maryland. It is highly recommended that appointments be made online via Eventbrite. Taxpayers are required to bring the following items to their tax appointment:
LifeStyles is no longer able to access former tax returns that have been completed by our tax preparers due to a change in the tax software used. If persons have Schedule C (business income or loss), the expenses have to be $25,000 or less, and expenses cannot be more than income. LifeStyles has the right to deny tax services to any tax filer who does not qualify, is considered "out-of-scope" for our services or may falsify information. Your appointment scheduling is confirmation that you understand the above policies.
