Black River United Ways VITA Tax Sites will reopen in February of 2022.

Due to COVID-19 safety regulations, we will NOT be accepting walk-ins at any of our locations.

What Is VITA?

Sponsored by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), VITA provides free income tax preparation assistance to individuals and families with a household income of $60,000 a year or less.

VITA helps taxpayers obtain all eligible tax credits and deductions, especially the Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, Education Tax Credits and Child Care tax deductions. By offering this service for free in Georgetown & Williamsburg Counties, we can help more individuals and families maximize their returns while achieving greater financial stability.

How It Works

IRS-trained and -certified volunteers serve at our two locations to help participants receive all eligible tax credits and deductions. Clients arrive to their appointment, complete intake forms, and provide needed documents in person. Once the return is received, the client is scheduled to pick up their return on another day. Preparation is completed by an IRS-certified volunteer between the two appointments.
