How it Works

Each year United Way helps hundreds of local families prepare their income taxes, free of charge, with our Volunteer Income Tax Assistant (VITA) program.

Trained volunteers will prepare taxes for FREE for Quad Citizens with a household income of $60,000 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).

More Information

For further information about VITA eligibility email VITA Coordinator Monte Schwartz or call 563.355.4310.

In the past three years, VITA & AARP tax aide have helped return about $12 million to families & individual filers in the area.

Special Thanks

The Quad Cities VITA Coalition is led by United Way Quad Cities, in collaboration with AARP of Western Illinois and AARP of Eastern Iowa.

Thank you to our volunteers and host sites for allowing us to offer this much in-demand service.

United Way also thanks tax filers for respecting and following health and safety guidelines as posted by tax preparation sites to prevent the spread of illness.
