Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA) of the United Way of Greater Richmond & Petersburg offers free tax help to qualified individuals who need assistance preparing their tax returns.

University of Richmond students become IRS-certified volunteers and may help with special credits, such as Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, and Credit for the Elderly or the Disabled.

In addition to free tax return preparation assistance, most sites also offer free electronic filing (e-filing). Certified volunteers receive training to help prepare basic tax returns in communities across the country.
