In-Person Tax Preparation

Para instrucciones en español de click aquí.

Thanks to our partnership with the IRS, each year Greater Longview United Way assists hundreds of low-income families with free tax preparation through our Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program.

If your 2021 household income was $60,000 or less, you can have your taxes prepared FREE OF CHARGE by one of our IRS-certified VITA volunteers. Our volunteers can help you claim available tax credits and electronically file your taxes. By taking advantage of this free service, you can avoid paying fees, claim the tax credits you're eligible for, and obtain the largest refund possible.
