The University of Tennessee Extension, working with other state and national organizational partners, has launched a comprehensive statewide program to help Tennesseans save and build wealth. Through financial and savings education, the objectives of the Tennessee Saves program include building and protecting wealth, planning for a secure financial future, paying down debt, and protecting against financial fraud.

For more information, check out the Tennessee Saves Chattanooga Chapter FaceBook page.

At the beginning of each year (leading up to tax return time), the Hamilton County Extension Office, along with other community partners, participates in the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. This program provides free tax return preparation for households earning $58,000 or less annual income. Detailed information on locations and hours will be posted here as soon as it becomes available.
