The V.I.T.A. program offers free tax help to households who make less than $54,000, persons with disabilities, and senior citizens who need assistance in preparing their own tax returns. IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation with electronic filing to qualified individuals. In 2015, thirteen United Way volunteers prepared 559 returns for residents of Southern Chautauqua County. This service returns 100% of the refund amount to individuals and helps them avoid dangerous Refund Anticipation Loans. Call 2-1-1 to make your appointment today.
