Registration for Jackson County United Way’s Free Income Tax Assistance program will begin Jan. 4.
Households making less than $66,000 are able to get their taxes done for free by IRS-certified tax preparers.
In 2021, the FITA program was able to help 528 clients receive $669,731 in federal refunds and $67,852 in state refunds.
Mostly volunteer-driven, this program is in its 12th year serving Jackson County.
