Get Your Taxes Filed For Free, VITA 2020

Free… really?

You may think this sounds too good to be true, but it isn’t. A Rhode Island family with three children and an income of $55,952 qualifies for free tax filing services through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program.

Last year, United Way of Rhode Island, in partnership with Citizens Bank, invested in 24 VITA sites throughout the state. Each site was staffed by IRS-trained and certified volunteers who utilized electronic filing to help Rhode Islanders get their refunds quickly.

Find out if you qualify.
