If you’ve earned $55,000 or less in 2017 you’re eligible to participate in United Way’s VITA program. This program has certified volunteers assist you with your basic income tax return for free. They’ll let you know if you qualify for any special tax credits such as Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, and Credit for the Elderly or the Disabled. Below are the VITA sites, dates and times.
In 2016, volunteers helped 149 percent more tax payers than the year before. The program is growing in Horry County because of its volunteer director and the many who help her.
