Volunteer Income Tax Assistance - VITA
Free assistance on your federal tax return
Since the implementation of the VITA program in 1969, thousands of volunteers have
provided free tax assistance and prepared millions of U.S. Federal returns. The targeted
population for VITA services includes individuals with low-to-moderate income (less than
$53,000), persons with disabilities, elderly, and Limited English Proficiency (LEP). The
VITA program is vital to delivering service to those taxpayers who most need tax
assistance and cannot afford the services of a paid preparer.
In addition to tax assistance, clients can get referrals for job skill training, one-on-one
financial coaching, credit counseling and ESL or GED class completion.
