Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program

Para instruciones en español de click aquí.

The Greater Longview United Way, in partnership with the Internal Revenue Service, assists low-income families with free preparation of their income tax returns through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program. Through this program, we help local residents who earn less than about $60,000 a year to access credits for which they are eligible, including the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC).

The VITA program utilizes IRS trained community volunteers to provide this free service. English and Spanish speaking volunteers are available.

For over ten years, Greater Longview United Way has provided free tax preparation. In the 2019 tax season alone, VITA volunteers assisted 864 families by preparing and e-filing their tax returns. This program helped families take advantage of the tax credits they are eligible for including the Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, and Education Credit. The total amount of the returns brought back into the community added up to over one million dollars. 


Our free tax preparation services are available to eligible taxpayers in three different options.
