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.

The VITA Program gives you two options to choose from to file your tax return:
