Tax Prep Help? 

Each year, millions of dollars are lost by Bluegrass families who do not file for their Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) during tax time. Don’t miss out on money you may be eligible to receive.  In 2022, VITA returned over $2 million in Earned Income Tax Credits. 

United Way of the Bluegrass has announced that registration is now OPEN for tax help with VITA! Skilled volunteers are ready to assist you so you can get your taxes prepped, filed and behind you for another year. Visit uwbg.org or call 2-1-1 to make your appointment. Slots are limited, so don’t delay.
