Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program

Free tax preparation services to people who earn $55,000 or less.

The VITA Program generally offers free tax preparation services to people who earn $55,000 or less and need assistance in preparing their own tax returns.

IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation to qualified individuals in local communities.

They can inform taxpayers about special tax credits for which they may qualify such as Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, and Credit for the Elderly or the Disabled. VITA sites are generally located at community and neighborhood centers, libraries, schools, shopping malls, and other convenient locations. Most locations also offer free electronic filing.

Volunteers are not trained to prepare tax forms that include business, rental, or partnership income.

VITA sites are generally located at community and neighborhood centers, libraries, schools, shopping malls, and other convenient locations. Most locations also offer free electronic filing.
