Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA)

FREE Tax Prep
Put money back in your pocket.

Berkshire United Way helps build economic prosperity for all by ensuring those who qualify receive the earned income tax credit and any other eligible tax credits through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA). Since Berkshire United Way began investing in VITA, millions in additional dollars have been returned to working families in Berkshire County. Last year alone VITA resulted in over $1.7 million of additional funds circulating in our community.
