VITA Free Tax Preparation Appointments Available in Conway and Myrtle Beach

In partnership with United Way of Greenville County, the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program (VITA) provides free income tax preparation assistance to individuals and families with a household income of $60,000 a year or less. Our team can help you obtain all eligible tax credits and deductions, especially the Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, Education Tax Credits, and Child Care tax deductions.

IRS-trained and certified volunteers serve 4 locations in Horry County to help participants receive all eligible tax credits and deductions. Clients arrive at their appointment to drop off completed intake forms, tax documents, and to provide all of the necessary documentation to the volunteer. A certified volunteer will review the return for accuracy, and the client will return the following week to pick up the completed tax return. A list of items to bring to your appointment is included below.

To make an appointment, please call 211 or 864.382.3326.
