Free VITA Tax Preparation
Do you need help with your taxes? Flat River Outreach Ministries (FROM) can help! In partnership with United Way and the IRS, FROM offers free VITA Tax Preparation and e-filing for qualifying families with annual incomes less than $66,000.
The service is available at the FROM office on Tuesdays (by appointments only) from February – April. Morning, afternoon, and evening appointments are available. Please contact United Way at 2-1-1- to schedule an appointment.
VITA stands for Volunteer Income Tax Assistance. All volunteers in this program work individually with consumers and are certified by the IRS. These tax prepares are trained to maximize tax credits and refunds.
In 2018, our VITA program served 281 households and helped them obtain $ 445,799 in reimbursements.
VITA tax preparation is offered through April each year to meet tax filling deadlines.
