TAX PREPARATION ASSISTANCE United Ways of Vermont helps to support statewide assistance for tax preparation through Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA), which offers free tax help to people who generally make $54,000 or less, persons with disabilities, the elderly and limited English-speaking taxpayers who need assistance in preparing their own tax returns. IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation with electronic filing to qualified individuals.
EMERGENCY & DISASTER RELIEF The Citizens Assistance Registry for Emergencies (CARE) is a joint project between the United Ways of Vermont and the Vermont Enhanced 9-1-1 Board that is designed to assist people during local emergencies of all kinds – from natural disasters to human-caused power outages. For elders or people with physical or mental disabilities, such events can become life-threatening if they are prolonged and no one is available to help. The CARE Program is meant to identify Vermont residents who would require special assistance in an emergency. Register now with CARE in case of emergency.
