SEVCA and Granite United Way help Vermonters keep more of their hard-earned income through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program.

The purpose of the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program (VITA) is to educate taxpayers about available tax credits so that low- to moderate-income Vermonters can keep more of their income. The VITA program recruits, trains, and certifies community volunteers who provide free assistance in preparing tax returns. The volunteers can also provide information about financial literacy and asset accumulation. The program encourages families and individuals to use a portion of their tax returns to begin a savings account.

The IRS estimates that 20% of the taxpayers that qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit do not claim the credit. Some of the tax credits that can reduce your taxes and increase your refund include:

  • Earned Income Credit

  • Child and Dependent Care Credit

  • Retirement Savings Contribution

  • Education Credit

  • Vermont property tax adjustment
