The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program offers free tax preparation services to taxpayers with an adjusted gross income of $56,000 or less. IRS-certified volunteers provide free
basic income tax return preparation to qualified individuals in local communities. Taxpayers will learn about tax credits for which they may qualify such as Earned Income Tax Credit,
Child Tax Credit or the Credit for the Elderly or the Disabled.
VITA Services run February to April 15 each year.
2020 tax season appointments will be available beginning January 20, 2020.
United Way of Porter County is one of 15 organizations that make up the Northwest Indiana Asset Building Coalition, which provides VITA program services in Lake, Porter, Pulaski and Starke
Counties. To make an appointment at a different Asset Building Coalition location, click here.
