About Nehemiah Gateway’s Free Tax Prep

Nehemiah Gateway CDC is the only IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) grant recipient in the State of Delaware. We provide FREE Tax Prep services for low-to-moderate income families & individuals in Delaware. The VITA program is made possible through the generosity of volunteers who take the time to train on weekends or after work to obtain an IRS certification as a volunteer tax preparer and understands Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), Child Tax Credit, education credit and other deductions you may qualify for. Through collaboration, in addition to free tax preparation/education services, the campaign provides asset-building tools that include savings accounts, US savings bonds, and prepaid debit cards. These amazing volunteers have also assisted thousands of families and saved millions of dollars in tax preparation fees.

We have locations statewide and our tax sites are managed by experienced staff who will ensure your return is prepared accurately to yield the maximum refund allowable by the IRS. We will review your return with you and answer any questions and promptly e-file to ensure that you receive the best service.

We are open and ready to serve you. Please make an appointment to get current or prior year returns prepared. We look forward to serving you and your family.

Free federal and state tax returns

For taxpayers with household income $60,000 or less.

Get your refund as quickly as possible! Returns are typically electronically filed within 24-48 hours which means your refund could be received in as little as 10 days (with no reduction of the amount refunded for fees, loans, or interest charges). We can open a deposit or savings account, savings bond, or convenient cash card on the spot.

Save some now, spend later! Taxpayers can save a portion of their refund immediately by purchasing a savings bond or opening a savings account with a credit union while at the tax site. This way, 100% of the refund and credit is yours.

Tax prep that is free & professional!

With locations statewide, our tax sites are managed by experienced staff who will see that your return is accurate and submitted promptly. We review your return, answer questions, and ensure that you receive the best service available.

Our tax preparers are IRS-trained volunteers who understand the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), Child Tax Credit, Education Credit, and other deductions that can boost your return. We also help identify other financial services and products offered through our organization, or refer you to partnering organizations.
