The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program is a free tax preparation service run by volunteers. VITA offers free tax help to those who made $66,000 or less and need assistance in preparing their tax return. IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation with electronic filing.
Appointments start on Feb. 5. In Orange County, appointments will be available on Tuesday and Thursday during the first week. Starting Feb. 12, appointments will be available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays until April 11. In Osceola County, appointments will be available on Tuesdays and Thursday from Feb. 5 to April 11.
Last year, 4C volunteers prepared 98 tax returns during the 2018 tax filing season.
