Last year the United Way of South Texas had 300 volunteers (high school students and adults) who participated in the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program. To volunteer, register at Volunteerssotx.org or call 956-686-6331 and attend one of the orientation sessions.

The EITC/VITA Community Project of Hidalgo - Starr (VITA Project) provides the only free Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program serving low to middle income working families in Hidalgo and Starr counties. This program will open its doors in various locations around the Hidalgo and Starr County areas late January or early February.

United Way Board of Directors, BBVA Compass, Frost Bank, H.E.B., Lone Star National Bank, Magic Valley Electric, IRS, McAllen Chamber of Commerce, Security Service Federal Credit Union, Texas Regional Bank and Wells Fargo are among the companies that are sponsoring the VITA/TCE Program.

United Way of South Texas wants to reach over 250,000 low to moderate income workers with information about tax benefits, refunds, and free tax services in 2016. Join the team doing meaningful work for our residents, join VITA.
