It’s time to schedule your 2020 Federal Tax filing appointment!  United Way can help you at any of our site locations throughout Lee, Hendry, Glades, and Charlotte Counties.  United Way VITA is a FREE tax filing service available to individuals and families making under $66,000.  VITA is a national program staffed by local volunteers who provide free, confidential and secure preparation and e-filing of tax returns to qualified taxpayers.

United Way IRS-certified volunteers who are passionate about taxes will prepare your return and determine if you are eligible for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and/or Childcare Credits when you file. We do simple returns.  We cannot do returns that have rental income; or self-employment income at a loss, with expenses that exceed $35,000, or with employees.

Choose an Option that is right for you:

  • File Yourself– Have a simple tax return and a computer? You can file yourself for FREE with  starting in February.
  • Let Us File for you 100% virtually – Complete an online intake form and upload photos or scans of your documents into our secure site and our VITA trained volunteers will complete the return for you. Visit
  • Schedule an appointment at one of our tax sites. Please pay careful attention to the description of the sites listed—some do offer traditional face-to-face appointments while others only offer drop-off/pick up tax appointments.
