In Hillsborough, Pinellas and Sarasota, we have year round VITA locations. Click here for the list and schedule.


Have your federal tax return prepared, e-filed, and direct deposited for FREE. You don’t need to pay $200 or more for simple tax preparation! IRS-certified volunteers will prepare your taxes and ensure you get the largest refund for which you qualify. You may also be eligible for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) when you file.

Income tax returns are prepared and electronically filed for FREE year-round at four locations. All locations are by appointment only.
