United Way of West Florida offers free tax assistance programs for individuals and families with low to moderate income.
VITA(Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) sites are operated by IRS partners such as United Way of West Florida and are staffed by volunteers who want to make a difference in their communities. All VITA volunteers who prepare returns must take and pass tax law training that meets or exceeds IRS standards. This training includes maintaining the privacy and confidentiality of all taxpayer information.
