United Way of Kenosha County in partnership with Carthage College, University of Wisconsin-Parkside and The Sharing Center of Paddock Lake are excited to announce an opening of a county Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA) for 2010. The VITA Program offers free tax help to low- to moderate-income (generally, $49,000 and below) individuals and families who cannot prepare their own tax returns. Certified volunteers have received training to help prepare basic tax returns in Kenosha County.

VITA runs every Saturday morning ending on April 10. The County VITA site is located at the Sharing Center, 7001 236th Ave, Paddock Lake, WI 53168.
