We empower individuals and drive systemic change to provide everyone with a clear path to success.
United Way’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program offers free tax preparation for families and individuals with income of $55,000 or less.
This program promotes financial well-being, one of United Way’s nine Steps to Success. Our team of staff and volunteers prepare income tax returns for qualifying families and individuals and advocate for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). Our work ensures that tax returns are accurate and everyone receives their full refund and avoids unclaimed tax credits, fees for tax preparation services and refund anticipation loans.
We host many tax sites throughout the Greater Richmond and Petersburg region, all with a range of operating hours between February and April 15th, which ensures everyone will be able to find a time and a place that they can receive free tax assistance.
