As newspapers around the country furlough their employees hours, that means less journalism at a time when staying connected at the local level is important.

If you are able, Racine County Eye needs your financial support today to keep us focused on the things that matter. Click here to support our coverage. We appreciate every one of our readers and we’re grateful to earn your trust every day.

VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) is a national program staffed by local volunteers that provide free preparation and electronic filing of tax returns to Racine County residents. This important service supports low- to moderate-income households and relies on volunteers to do its work.

Volunteers are needed as tax preparers, greeters, and bilingual interpreters. No experience is necessary. Free in-person and web-based training will be provided. Weekday, evening and weekend shifts are available at sites throughout Racine County.

If you are interested in volunteering, you can apply here.
