Nothing is worse than doing your income tax return than having to pay to get them done — especially when money is tight. Once again, the United Way has come through to offer their Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program. This program provides free tax-preparation service to individuals and households with incomes less than $66,000/yr through April 16. There are 16 VITA sites, located throughout Palm Beach County, each staffed with fully trained and certified volunteers.
Free help filing your income tax return
There are 3 options for you to choose from:
Get your taxes filed for you. Free tax preparation services are offered at several county-wide sites.
File your income tax return with help (FSA). Visit select sites and receive assistance from qualified volunteers filling out the form.
You also have the option to file your taxes yourself. Visit MyFreeTaxes.com.
