UNITED WAY OF THE FLORIDA KEYS OFFERS FREE TAX PREPARATION
United Way of the Florida Keys is offering FREE tax preparation for Monroe County residents with limited incomes. The VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) program assists clients on a walk-in basis with completion of their annual tax return, to ensure that taxpayers receive every available benefit.
VITA volunteer tax preparers are IRS-certified and prepared to complete simple state and federal tax returns, including identifying available credits, for those with a household income of less than $56,000 in 2019. There is absolutely no charge to the taxpayer for this service. UWFK is pleased to offer the VITA program with support from Wells Fargo.
Since AARP has discontinued its tax preparation services in Monroe County, UWFK now offers the only free tax program and has added availability accordingly.
