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.

IMPORTANT NOTICE. July 31 deadline. Action required.
We want to thank you for your prior use of United Way of Greater Stark County VITA services.
Previously, your tax preparation documents were completed using Ohio Benefit Bank Tax and Benefit software, contracted via Communally.
As of July 31, 2019, the Communally software vendor via Ohio Benefit Bank will cease operations.
Please note that United Way of Greater Stark County will continue to provide tax preparation services for you through VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance), we will simply use a different software platform.
If you need access to any previous tax documents, you MUST access them prior to July 31. You will not have access to accounts or any previously submitted data after that date.
