VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance)

Free tax preparation by certified volunteers can help you keep more of your money in your pocket.

United Way is helping hard-working families return more of their income through VITA.

United Way of Western Connecticut is proud to support Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) programs in our community every year and work alongside the Connecticut Association of Human Services (CAHS) and other community partners to provide this service that can put more dollars back into our community. Increasing the amount of Earned Income Tax Credits and returns, while providing a free service to ALICE households, has been shown to improve economic security.

VITA is a safe, simple way to file your taxes. With volunteers, VITA prepares tax returns at no cost for families that earn less than $55,000 per year by working as a team to make sure everything is right and that all returns are quality reviewed.
