Benefits of filing with VITA

Deciding to file with VITA is the first step to bringing home your maximum tax refund.

Filing your taxes alone can be confusing and overwhelming. You may feel like you’re missing out on tax breaks or forgetting to file a required document. Filing with VITA is free, painless, and, more often than not, results in extra money in your pocket! Learn more about the benefits below.

Take advantage of tax breaks

Our IRS-certified volunteers are trained to help you and your family take advantage of all tax breaks you may be eligible for. Some relevant credits may include:

  • Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). The EITC is a tax break for those with a household income of less than $59,187.
  • Child Tax Credit. This credit applies to those who can claim one or more children as a dependent.
  • Tax Credit for the Elderly. Those who are 65 and older are eligible for this tax credit.
