Volunteer Income Tax AssistanceThe Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program is a free tax preparation service run by volunteers offered to families throughout Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties. Once filing season opens, our volunteers are available to help you file your taxes at a time and location convenient for you.

VITA offers free tax help to those who make $73,000 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 up to $6,935 back.

Things you may need when filing your taxes*:

  • Valid photo ID
  • Copy of your 2021 tax return, if available
  • Social security card or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number for you, your spouse and any children born before 12/31/2022
  • Income documentation, including W-2 forms for all jobs held during 2022, and any 1099 forms showing other income for the year
  • Bank account information (including routing and account numbers) or a blank check for direct deposit, if applicable
  • Forms 1095 – A,B, and C Health Coverage Statement

*Additional documentation may be required. View the complete list of materials you need to bring to your nearest VITA site.
