This free service saves taxpayers the expense of tax preparation services, which average about $273. Last year we saved taxpayers more than $2.4 million in fees.
At VITA we value:
sense, and our resources to solve problems.
are responsive to the needs of our teammates and clients.
VITA is changing the paradigm of tax time to one of hope by replacing the typical frustration with opportunities to take advantage of tax refunds, investing in the future.

Any household that made $70,000 or less in 2023 is eligible to file your taxes for free in person or at MyFreeTaxes.com. You may qualify to have your income taxes prepared free of charge at our VITA locations in Lancaster County in 2024:
