REDDING, Calif. -

Goodwill is offering free tax preparation help as deadline to file taxes inches closer.

The deadline to file your taxes is April 15 and Goodwill in Redding on Hilltop Drive and the State Board of Equalization want to help you file them for free.

IRS certified "VITA" volunteers will give you full service tax preparation if you have an annual adjusted gross income of $52,000 or less.

VITA stands for volunteer information tax association.

They'll coach you through a "My Free Taxes Online Program" if you have an annual gross income of $58,000 or less.

They will also help if you are disabled.

It's the second year Goodwill has offered the services and organizers said they have seen an increase in people utilizing their resources this year.

If you would like some help you need to make an appointment but Goodwill said they are flexible.

They are available by appointment from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

To make an appointment call (530) 351-7677.
