United Way Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program

Continuing a popular service from the last several years, FISH will again host the United Way Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program which offers free tax preparation assistance. Eligible households must make $66,000 or less. Participating taxpayers will have their returns completed and filed for them at no cost. VITA will offer tax preparation service at the FISH Palm Ridge location — 2330 Palm Ridge Road, #16, Sanibel, next to Island Pharmacy, from 9:00a-1:00p. Appointments are required. During the appointment, an intake, tax return preparation and quality review will be conducted. Upon completion, the return will be filed on-site with the preparer. Individuals should plan for an approximate one-hour appointment. Additional appointment dates are February 18 and 25; March 11 and 25; and April 8 from 9:00a-1:00p. For those with time constraints, documentation may be dropped off on Feb. 11 and 18 between 4-6p. The documentation will be taken to Fort Myers for return preparation and returned to Sanibel for pick up on the following Friday at the Palm Ridge location.
