The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program provides free tax preparation services to individuals and families making less than $54,000. Let VITA help you get your hard-earned money back!
During last year’s 2015 tax season, volunteer tax preparers filed 791 federal returns totaling $1,042,715 in refunds and credits for local people.
Hundreds of state and local taxes were filed at no cost, as well. The VITA program is supported by several community partners in Lebanon County, including the United Way of Lebanon County, Harrisburg Area Community College’s Lebanon Campus, Lebanon County Community Action Partnership, Lebanon Valley College, Grace United Church of Christ, Salem Lutheran Church, PROBE, RSVP of the Capital Region and numerous community volunteers.
HOW DOES VITA HELP YOU?
VITA helps put hard-earned money back in the pockets of low-to-moderate income wage earners in the form of tax refunds and tax credits. And the free service saves taxpayers the expense of tax preparation services.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE:
Any household that made $54,000 or less in 2016 is eligible to have taxes filed for free.
