VITA

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) is a national IRS sponsored program that provides free preparation of federal and state tax returns for households with income less than $54,000.

VITA volunteers help complete and file tax returns for those who can’t afford professional tax preparation services. In 2017, 65 volunteers contributed 2,900 hours to the VITA program. They prepared 1,902 federal tax returns and 1,727 state returns. This saved VITA clients $335,000 in tax preparation fees and helped them claim $3.35 million in federal and state tax refunds.

If you would like to make a difference to local taxpayers by volunteering during the 2017–18 VITA season, please fill out the form below.
