RICHMOND, Virginia (WRIC) – The United Way of Greater Richmond and Petersburg kicks off its 18th year of the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program this week.
This is a tax service offered to families in the area with household incomes less than $ 56,000.
“With the tax season ahead and the pandemic financial uncertainty that is still a reality for many in the region, it is more important than ever for households to be able to plan what they might owe or come back,” said James Taylor, president and CEO of United Way of Greater Richmond and Petersburg.
You will have tax pages in Richmond, Goochland, Chesterfield, Henrico and Charles City in addition to online tax preparation services. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, United Way said, personal control stations operate only by appointment, follow social distancing guidelines, and require people to wear face masks.
“Our Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program is a powerful service that we offer every year,” said Taylor. “This year’s mix of personal and virtual options will enable us to navigate this challenging moment and help thousands of local families work towards financial stability.”
