Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA)

Organization: United Planning Organization

Thoughtful tax preparation is essential for you and your family to reach financial security. While most other preparers will charge you and take their fee out of your refund, our trustworthy IRS-certified volunteers and staff always help you for free because that’s part of UPO’s mission. As a community-based nonprofit, we Unite People with Opportunities so they can build a better life.

Our volunteers will:

Walk you through your credit score
Guide you through the tax-preparation process
Secure the best possible refund for you
Advise you on the best ways to use your refund to build savings and prepare for retirement
UPO has an outstanding track record of helping low and middle-income families gain financial stability. Last year alone our experts helped nearly 1,100 of our neighbors prepare their taxes, creating 787 tax returns and distributing $1 million in refunds to our community.

Application: Our 2021 VITA tax program opens from January 25th and runs for 11 weeks until April 15th. Call us in late December to set a time for your free, expert tax prep!
