Helping You Navigate Tax Season


Volunteer Income Tax Preparation Assistance (VITA) Program 

The mission of the VITA program is to assist eligible taxpayers in satisfying their tax responsibilities by providing free tax return preparation.

What is VITA?

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program has been in existence for 50 years, offering free tax help to people who cannot afford professional assistance. Volunteers come from all backgrounds and undergo a comprehensive training program. Tax preparers must pass annual certifying exams to prove their understanding of relevant tax laws and proficiency of e-filing and tax preparation methods using IRS-approved software.
