Indy Free Tax Prep

Indy Free Tax Prep

Indy Free Tax Prep is a network of Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) sites that offer free tax preparation to individuals and families with a combined household income of $60,000 or less.

The VITA program, in partnership with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), is designed to ensure that residents receive all the tax credits and deductions for which they are eligible. Volunteers are certified by the IRS to provide free, basic tax return preparation to qualified individuals.

This initiative supports United Way of Central Indiana’s community goal of reducing the number of financially unstable households in Central Indiana. The Indy Free Tax Prep network currently operates VITA sites in Marion, Hendricks and Morgan Counties.

Community Impact

Many of our Central Indiana neighbors do not have access to affordable tax preparation or are unaware of available credits like the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), Child Tax Credit (CTC), and Education Tax Credit.

In 2015, more than 7,000 tax returns were prepared for Central Indiana residents at no cost, resulting in more than $8 million in refunds and $1.5 million saved in tax preparation services.

Local public and private organizations have partnered with Indy Free Tax Prep to increase the financial stability of individuals and families in Central Indiana. Partners include: the Indianapolis Asset Building Coalition, United Way of Central Indiana, Greater Indianapolis Progress Committee (GIPC), the City of Indianapolis, Clear Channel, Goodwill Industries of Central Indiana, Citizens Energy Group, IndyGo, financial institutions and community organizations.
