VITA Program

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) - You still have until September 2022 to file!

Low-to-Moderate income families in Genesee and Shiawassee County can file their taxes for free with an IRS-certified volunteer through United Way's Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program.  VITA is a volunteer run program in partnership with the IRS to help families access the EITC and other credits that can boost financial stability. 

There is one site open on Wednesdays through September for continued tax preparation, promoting the Home Heating Credit. This site is intake only, meaning, taxpayers will bring in their tax documents and drop them off with an intake specialist for uploading to the virtual VITA site at MCC Workforce Development for preparing. No onsite tax preparation will take place while the taxpayer is present.
