United Way Puts $2.5 Million Back Into Community

April 29, 2019 – United Way’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program offers free tax preparation for families and individuals with income of $55,000 or less. 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.

This year, United Way’s VITA program made a remarkable difference in the region by returning over $2.5 million in federal refunds!
