Each year, United Way of Martin County offers free income tax preparation through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program. The VITA program helps residents with a household income of $54,000 or less, keep their hard-earned money.
Call (772) 283-4800 to schedule an appointment at United Way of Martin County’s VITA site or call 2-1-1 for more information.
The VITA program is designed to offer financial stability:
- It saves moderate- and lower-income families the cost of paying for tax preparation.
- It makes sure that working families get the tax credits they deserve, such as the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC)
- It saves families from taking out a loan against their own money, which is what they must do to get an “instant refund” through a commercial preparer.
