Over the last 11 years, with the assistance of dozens of community volunteers, and collaboration with our partner organizations, United Way’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program has assisted more than 5,000 Adams County individuals and families. The program has resulted in more than eight million dollars being returned in federal and state refunds to the community. It is estimated that about 80% of refunds are spent locally, which generates local sales, wages, and jobs, ultimately boosting the local economy right here in Adams County. These tax refunds help families pay bills, cover basic needs, and save for the future putting them on a pathway to financial stability.

I want you to consider joining the VITA volunteer team and help families receive much-needed tax refunds and save hundreds of dollars in tax preparation fees. No prior tax experience is required, and training is free.

Michael Jackman is an enrolled agent with fifty years of tax experience. He is also a member of the Board of Directors of the United Way of Adams County.
