Tax Help

The IRS’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program provides free income tax assistance and filing for qualified individuals using trained volunteers. Due to a very limited number of trained volunteers, VITA will be unable to provide the free tax service at UNC Hospital and the State Employees’ Credit Union this year.

However, VITA will offer income tax preparation services to qualified individuals at The Seymour Center in Chapel Hill. Below is the information for the Seymour Center. Click here to search for other income tax assistance locations near your home.

Please note: As UNC Health Care has expanded across North Carolina, the need for a term to refer to the Chapel Hill assets on the overall system website became apparent. The UNC Medical Center logo and references, is a term that will be used to refer to State employees that work in the following UNC Health Care facilities: UNC Hospitals and its clinics; UNC Faculty Physicians’ clinics; and the Hillsborough Campus. Please note that on all Human Resources webpages, forms, and documents you will still see “UNC Health Care” term that is referencing the three above mentioned facilities.
