PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WMBB) — Northwest Florida’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program, also known as VITA, opens its doors January 21 at 9 a.m. to taxpayers who made $66,000 or less in the 2019 tax year.

No appointment is necessary to receive the assistance, and trained volunteers will work until April 15 to help the public file tax information.

For those who plan to use VITA, they need to bring a photo I.D., all necessary tax documents like W-2’s and 1099’s, social security cards for those on the tax documents, and banking information to make the return a direct deposit.
