Become a VITA Volunteer!

Why should YOU become a VITA Volunteer?

Because YOU can help hard working families in the community get back the tax credits they deserve, such as Earned Income Tax Credits (EITC), and help improve financial stability in the community by offering free tax preparation services! As a VITA volunteer you will also learn valuable skills.

Stay tuned for ways to become a VITA volunteer next year. More information will be available in November 2022.
