Dear VITA Client –

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, and following recommendations from the CDC and Florida Dept. of Health, our VITA sites are closed indefinitely.

We apologize for any convenience this causes you but our main concern is the continued well-being of our tax clients, volunteers and staff.

Please check this website regularly and follow us on social media (listed at the bottom of this page) for the most up-to-date information.

We encourage you to do your taxes for free online at myfreetaxes.com or the IRS-certified free file site. Additional tools to help you include a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and a form to submit a question if you don’t see yours on the FAQ sheet. 

The tax filing deadline has been delayed until July 15, 2020, although the IRS is encouraging anyone anticipating a refund to file now. If you owe money on your taxes, payments are being deferred until July 15, 2020 as well. For more information, please visit irs.gov/coronavirus
