It’s your money – you earned it.

You may not file taxes because you don’t make enough. Did you know that you may qualify to get money from the government? Get money back, don’t leave money on the table.

The Earned Income Tax Credit (EIC or EITC) is a tax credit for low and moderate-income wage earners. For the 2019 tax year, the earned income credit ranges from $529 to $6,557 depending on your filing status and how many children you have.

 

Avoid the debt with tax loans, take advantage of VITA.

United Way’s free Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program provides Greater Atlanta’s working individuals and families help to simplify the tax filing process and claim important tax credits.

 

About VITA

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program is a national initiative of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) that offers FREE tax help to low- to moderate-income ($56,000 and under) individuals and families. Taxes are prepared in–person by IRS trained and certified volunteers.

 

Where you can find VITA

VITA sites are generally located at community and neighborhood centers, libraries, churches, schools, shopping malls, and other convenient locations. VITA ensures that eligible working families are receiving the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and other federal credits for which they may be eligible.
