Several Tax Sites are Still Open in the Orlando Area for FREE Tax Preparation after April 18!
The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program is a free tax preparation service run by volunteers offered to families throughout Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties.
VITA offers free tax help to those who make $54,000 or less and need assistance in preparing their tax returns. IRS-certified volunteers will provide free basic income tax return preparation with electronic filing. We also provide other essential information, like special tax credits you may qualify for to maximize your tax refund. If you qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), you can get over $6,000 back.
United Way can help by connecting you to free tax preparation sites.
