United Way Quad Cities is accepting appointments for its volunteer tax preparation services.

Led by United Way and AARP, the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) and Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) programs help thousands of QC residents and families prepare their income taxes free of charge. Individuals and families who earned up to $60,000 in 2022 are encouraged to schedule an appointment.

“Due to the rising costs of food, housing, medicine and other basic needs, many are facing uncertainty and are struggling,” Rene Gellerman, United Way president and CEO, said. “This free tax prep program helps provide hundreds of individuals and families with the boost they need to help strengthen their financial stability and provide some much-needed support in a year marred with inflation.”

The service, by appointment, will be provided from February 1 to April 12 at locations around the Quad Cities:
