CLEARWATER -The Juvenile Welfare Board of Pinellas County hosted an Appreciation Luncheon for the 129 volunteers who are part of the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program April 25 at Sunken Gardens in St. Petersburg.

VITA is an IRS program that helped thousands of low and moderate-income Pinellas County residents file their tax returns for free. The tax refunds that they receive through the Child Tax Credit, Earned Income Tax Credit and others that they may qualify for add up to an influx of more than $6 Million to the local economy.

The Pinellas Prosperity Partnership oversees the annual VITA program with staff support from the Juvenile Welfare Board and monetary support from the IRS, Bank of America Foundation and Wells Fargo. In addition, dozens of Pinellas agencies, colleges/universities, businesses and individuals provide support for the program in various ways.

In 2013, more than 120 VITA volunteers prepared just over 3,000 income tax returns and recovered $5.3M for Pinellas households. This tax season, a total of 12 fixed locations and six mobile sites spent hundreds of hours preparing 3,763 income tax returns and recovered more than $6 Million dollars back to the Pinellas County community.
