As we wrap up another successful tax season we would like to thank our volunteers and the community for supporting our Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. We couldn't do it without you! Check out our #TeamVITASalute here.
Between February 10 - April 15 almost 1,300 tax appointments were scheduled through WilcoFreeTaxPrep.org. Volunteers processed more than 1,000 returns, resulting in $1.5 million in refunds, and a savings of almost $300,000 in commercial preparation fees.
Here are a few of the comments we received from satisfied customers.
I want to thank the men and women who volunteer their skills and time to assist me and all others. This is the second year I used Vita for my tax preparation. They have not only used their expertise but were also friendly and answered any questions I had. -- C.S.
You guys have been there for us for several years doing our taxes and we are most appreciative. This year is no exception. Thanks for your support for seniors. Our experience this year was a little different and for you guys as well but overall as always a pleasant one. -- M.S.
I am very pleased with all the services that we received. They went above and beyond with all of the bad weather. We really appreciate your service. -- R.H. & S.H.
My experience with United Way assistance with preparing my tax return was so positive and such a relief! Thank you for doing this for people my age who need this help! -- J.H.
We definitely appreciate the service of the program. We would be lost without it. We are always pleased with the great volunteers and are grateful to them. I know this year because of Covid it was a little confusing , but our taxes were done in no time at all and we had no issues. Thank you again. -- J.D.
See you next year!
