VITA Sites: Get your taxes done for free

Getting your taxes done for free.

You may think this sounds too good to be true, but it isn’t. A Rhode Island family with three children and an income of $54,884 qualifies for Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA).

Last year, United Way of Rhode Island, in partnership with Citizens Bank, invested in 23 VITA sites across the state. The result: over 225 volunteers filed more than 26,000 individual tax returns — putting $20 million back in the pockets of hard-working Rhode Islanders.

Tax season is here once again.

This year, UWRI and Citizens Bank funded 24 VITA sites — each is staffed by IRS-trained and certified volunteers who utilize electronic filing.

Use this list to find a VITA site near you, and if you have any further questions, please call 2-1-1.
