Volunteer Income Tax Assistance

For the last 17 years, the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program has been an annual partnership with the University of Georgia’s College of Family and Consumer Sciences, Dalton State College and the IRS to provide free income tax preparation and filing for consumers of low to moderate income.


As VITA evolves, Georgia United will no longer be offering tax appointments at branch locations. During our partnership, over 1,000 college students participated in experiential learning training, assisting 11,000 families from 91 Georgia counties. Georgia United Foundation provided funding and Georgia United Credit Union offered extended hours and office space for tax prep appointments. 

Schedule an Appointment

Beginning in 2023, tax appointments can be scheduled directly with UGA and Dalton State. 

I was so impressed with how this program was run and the professionalism, care and knowledge of the students involved, that I have gone back every year for the last three years. I actually enjoy doing my taxes – now that says a lot! I highly recommend this wonderful outreach program to anyone who finds tax time overwhelming and stress producing! It has truly been a pleasant experience.
