Free Tax Preparation

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program

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.
We do simple returns.  We cannot do returns that have rental income; or self-employment income at a loss, with expenses that exceed $35,000, or with employees.
Please call to see if you qualify.


Choose an Option that is right for you:

  • File Yourself– Have a simple tax return and a computer? You can file yourself for FREE with  starting in February.
  • Let Us File for you 100% virtually – Complete an online intake form and upload photos or scans of your documents into our secure site and our VITA trained volunteers will complete the return for you. Visit
  • Schedule an appointment at one of our tax sites. Please pay careful attention to the description of the sites listed—some do offer traditional face-to-face appointments while others only offer drop-off/pick up tax appointments.
