A fun and rewarding way to volunteer, VITA tax preparers save hard working, low income families the high cost of a paid professional. Protected under the Volunteer Protection Act, our volunteers have no liability and can help as much or as little as they like. Volunteers can help bring millions of dollars in unclaimed EITC tax credits back into our communities and local economy.
Why is this free tax preparation program important? Our Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program directly helps people who don’t make a lot of money to get what they’ve earned. Even if a taxpayer isn’t eligible for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), VITA saves them hundreds of dollars in preparation fees.
