Volunteer Income Tax Information (VITA) is available to assist with the preparation for families whose annual household income is less than $54,000. Over 800 returns were prepared in 2015 and almost $1,000,000 in refunds was returned to Manatee County residents through the VITA program in Manatee County.
All VITA volunteers are certified by the IRS by completing training and passing a test. Tax returns are filed electronically and refunds are received more quickly than paper filers.
