HOW VITA WORKS

Each year, United Way Quad Cities helps hundreds of local families prepare their income taxes, free of charge, with VITA.
 
Trained volunteers will prepare taxes for FREE for Quad Citizens with a household income of $57,000 or less — and make sure you receive all tax credits you are eligible for including the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and the Child Tax Credit (CTC).
 
In the past two years, VITA has:
  • Completed nearly 10,000 free tax returns;
  • Returned an average of $1,500 per family;
  • Helped bring back over $9 million to the local economy.

Masks are required at all VITA locations, and COVID-19 health and safety precautions will be taken to prevent the spread of illness.
 
NEW DROP-OFF SERVICES: United Way will offer drop-off tax preparation by appointment at VITA tax preparation sites. Filers will have the option to schedule a time to check in and drop off tax documents and allow a trained volunteer to prepare their taxes. All personal documents will be secured, and the filer will be required to review and sign final paper onsite to complete the filing process and collect their forms.
