VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) provides free electronic (E-File) and paper Income Tax filing assistance for low to moderate income tax filers with incomes under $66,000. VITA has been assisting filers in Nassau County for over ten years. VITA volunteers are tested and certified by the Internal Revenue Service. This free service is provided by the IRS, the Real$ense Prosperity Campaign, a United Way Initiative, and in partnership with the Nassau County Public Library and the Fernandina Beach City Parks and Recreation Department.

Tax filing assistance begins January 30th and continues through April 17th. Tax filers who elect to have their returns E-Filed and are due a refund can expect their refund within two to three weeks with direct deposit. While walk-ins are welcome, taxpayers with appointments will take priority.

For Atlantic Rec Center appointments, dial 904-530-6500 and select the option for your local branch library. Please call during normal library hours – 10am to 6pm Monday – Saturday.
