Need Help Filing Your Taxes?

Woodbridge VITA Services

Like everything else in a pandemic, the program looks a little different this year. If you have a camera phone and an email address, you can begin the process at GetYourRefund.org/WBSC-CT. This is a new and secure national VITA website, created to serve the virtual needs of the program during the pandemic. You will still use local volunteers and will be contacted by phone and email.

Taxpayers who are unable to access a camera phone or email are encouraged to call Woodbridge Human Services at (203) 389-3429 to schedule an intake telephone appointment with a tax preparer and directions for drive-through document scanning.

For other questions regarding this program, please call Human Services.
