Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Services

In 2001, Metro United Way joined with the Annie E. Casey Foundation and several local partners to launch the Louisville Asset Building Coalition (LABC) to help hardworking families capitalize on the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and other eligible tax credits. LABC works with the IRS and a program called Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) to provide free income tax preparation for families with household incomes up to $66,000.

Connected filers to bank accounts and other services to help them build financial assets
