Super Start to Tax Season!

The 2014 Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program will “kick-off” on Super Sunday with more than 60 area people of low to moderate income having their taxes prepared—for FREE!
In a cooperative partnership, the United Way of Lackawanna and Wayne Counties and the University of Scranton Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program offer free tax preparation assistance if your household income was less than $51,000 in 2013.

Eight locations (8) in Lackawanna, Wayne and Susquehanna Counties will be open from February 2-April 5, 2014.


  • This FREE service is available only if your 2013 household income was less than $51,000.

  • If you have more than ONE (1) rental property or small business, you must go to the walk-in service at the University of Scranton. You may not make an appointment.

  • Please note that your appointment is only valid for ONE (1) person. You must make a separate appointment for each person who needs to have their taxes prepared.

  • If you arrive to your appointment and do not meet eligibility criteria, you may be turned away.
