You work hard throughout the year—so when it comes to tax time, you naturally want to keep as much of your money as you’d like. Of course, that hinges on proper tax preparation, and on taking advantage of tax credits such as the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC).
Thanks to Orange County United Way’s OC Free Tax Prep, it’s never been easier to file your taxes and access as many refunds and tax credits as possible. For eligible taxpayers in Orange County, we are proud to offer free tax prep services. Our goal is not only to make tax season easier for you, but also to put as much money in your pocket as possible—money you can use for food, gas, rent, retirement savings, or even college tuition. We invite you to learn more about this exciting program, and to find out if you’re eligible!
How the Program Works
The Orange County United Way works closely with the IRS, as well as local businesses and charitable organizations, to offer the OC Free Tax Prep program —allowing qualifying families throughout the area to have their taxes prepared and filed for free. The first step is simply to schedule an appointment with one of the IRS-certified volunteer tax preparers at the VITA site closest to you. These individuals can help you with your federal and California tax returns. Our VITA locations offer their services in a variety of languages—not just English, but also Spanish, Korean, Vietnamese, and more. Our volunteer tax preparers are exceedingly knowledgeable, well-trained, and friendly. Their job is to help you get your taxes done and to claim as many big savings as possible—putting more money in your pocket this tax season!
