VITA/TCE FREE Tax Prep Service

Don't Let FREE Tax Prep Pass You By. Make VITA Your Next Stop

United Way is excited to partner with Project SCOUT to offer the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program in Santa Cruz County. VITA is focused on putting more money into the pockets of working families. IRS-trained volunteers offer FREE Tax Prep for families and individuals who earned less than $56,000 in 2019! Our goal is to make sure you get your FULL refund, claim all your eligible credits, and learn to use taxes to grow your assets! You can count on VITA to provide the highest quality tax service to families and individuals.

There are TWO ways to file: In Person or Online
