Did you know?

  • VITA's IRS-certified tax preparers will prepare and e-file your income taxes for free if you live in Elkhart, Kosciusko, Marshall, LaPorte or St. Joseph County and have an adjusted gross income of $52,000 or less and your return does NOT include rental income, farm income, adoption credits or income from other states.
  • If you worked in 2013, you may be eligible for the Earned Income Tax Credit (up to $6,044 with three or more qualifying children) or Child Tax Credit (up to $6,000)—even if you don't owe income tax!

Benefits: This year the community can complete their taxes and e-file with a VITA tax preparer or on their own by using a VITA self-service kiosk available at one of the many locations throughout the region. Also, during tax assistance appointments taxpayers can enter for a chance to win a Pro$perity Package gift basket when they take United Way's Financial Fitness Test.

Other benefits of filing at a VITA site:

  • Filing electronically guarantees a quick refund (typically 7-14 days).
  • Maximizing credits and refunds helps put thousands of dollars back into our local economy.
  • All VITA tax preparers are IRS-trained and certified.
  • All VITA sites are a welcoming environment, handicap accessible and guarantee complete confidentiality.

VITA is a program of the Pro$perity Building Campaign Tax Team led by United Way of St. Joseph County. Through the Pro$perity Building Campaign, United Way is working to meet basic needs, build family support systems, increase income, build savings, and gain and sustain assets.
