Through the United Way Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, individuals and families with an annual household income of less than $60,000 can file their taxes for free from now until April 10, 2015.
Since the start of this year's VITA program on January 30, 2015, 211 returns have been completed with an average refund amount of nearly $2,300 going back into Rutherford and Cannon counties. The opportunity to file through the VITA program is allowing individuals and families to take immediate steps towards financial stability.
