Each year United Way of Alamance County partners with local schools, volunteers, and the IRS to provide the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program for our community.

IRS trained volunteers will prepare your taxes for FREE!  The money you save can be used to build wealth in your household and our community.

Anyone making less than $54,000 and older adults can benefit from free tax assistance services.

If you have questions about your refund please contact:
Federal: Where’s My Refund?  Español  or 1-800-829-1040 (#2 para Español)
State of NC: www.dornc.com, 1-877-252-4052 /3052 (#2 para Español)

If you make under $66,000, another resource is MyFreeTaxes.com.  This United Way program is tax preparation with all of the features and none of the fees along with support for dozens of tax forms, FREE state and federal filling, and live expert advice.
