VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance)

For more than ten years, United Way of Palm Beach County's VITA program, in conjunction with 2-1-1 and the IRS, has been providing free income tax return services to the community.

The VITA Program helps Palm Beach County taxpayers save over $1 million in fees they would have paid had they used a tax-preparation service. Additionally, research shows that taxpayers receiving refunds through returns processed at VITA sites used the money responsibly – to pay off debt, invest in education or housing, or open a bank account.

In 2013, VITA helped process more than 8,600 income tax returns for lower income households resulting in more than $5.4 million in earned income tax credits and over $14 million in tax returns. A program such as VITA not only helps individuals and families in our community but it also helps our local economy.
