Schedule Your Appointment Beginning January 23

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program is a free tax preparation to people who generally make $73,000 per year or less. This service is ran by volunteers offered to families and individuals in Central Florida. Once filing season opens, VITA’s IRS-certified volunteers can help you file your taxes at a time convenient for you.

For tax year 2022 some tax credits that were expanded in 2021 will return to 2019 levels. This means that affected taxpayers will likely receive a smaller refund compared with the previous tax year. Changes include amounts for the Child Tax Credit (CTC), Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Child and Dependent Care Credit.

  • Those who received $3,600 per dependent in 2021 for the CTC will, if eligible, get $2,000 for the 2022 tax year.
  • For the EITC, eligible taxpayers with no children who received roughly $1,500 in 2021 will now get $500 in 2022.
