free tax prep at 555 Windsor Street

Community Renewal Team, Inc. will host a walk-in Energy Assistance and VITA income tax event from 9 a.m.-1 p.m., Saturday, January 29 at its 555 Windsor Street Office in Hartford. CRT staff will process applications for those seeking financial assistance for their heating bills and complete free tax preparation and e-filing.

CRT intake specialists also will process Matching Payment Plan applications for Operation Fuel at the event. Customers using all types of heating fuel-electric, natural gas, oil, kerosene, wood and propane-may apply.
