What is VITA?
For many families in Huntington, Wabash, and North Manchester, taxes can feel like a burden. VITA Volunteers work to help lift that burden by offering families free tax preparation. Saving fees and maximizing tax refunds can give these families a path to financial stability by putting their hard-earned money back into their hands.
