Financial stability: counties across the Mid-South have *free* tax help sites open to serve

2013 FilingCitizens in counties across the Mid-South are able to access FREE tax preparation and filing help at EITCA and VITA sites across the region.

Citizens can now get their taxes filed for FREE thanks to the efforts of volunteers with United Way’s Earned Income Credit Alliance (EITCA) and Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA).

These volunteers help people prepare their taxes and file them, at no charge. It’s a great way to have your taxes prepared by trained volunteers who are looking for the best ways to connect people with potential refunds.

In addition to sites in Shelby County, TN (download a complete listing here) volunteers are working in counties across the region to help people with their taxes this year, such as:
