Free Tax Preparation
Volunteer Income Tax Program Assistance (VITA)
DID YOU EARN LESS THAN $66,000 LAST YEAR?
United Way’s Free Tax Preparation program helps low- to moderate-income households meet their basic needs and build financial assets. Residents who earn a household income of $66,000 or less can have their federal tax returns prepared, e- filed and direct deposited for FREE by United Way’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. United Way IRS-certified volunteers who are passionate about taxes will prepare your return and determine if you are eligible for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and/or Childcare Credits when you file.
