Volunteer Income Tax Assistance

Get your maximum tax refund with United Way’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. We offer free tax preparation services for low-to-moderate income individuals and families. Our IRS-certified volunteers will prepare and electronically file your federal and state tax returns, so you can quickly receive your full tax refund.

If you earn less than $65,000 a year as a single filer or less than $95,000 a year as a joint filer, you may be eligible for VITA services, along with the Earned Income Tax Credit.

To see if you qualify, contact us at 330-994-VITA (8482) or schedule an appointment HERE.
