The Voluntary Income Tax Assistance (VITA)/Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) program needs you! There are currently opportunities for volunteers to help families prepare tax returns and claim their EITC.

What can you do in four hours?
As a volunteer tax preparer you will be part of a tremendous effort that brings $20 million each year into the homes of low income families and the Sacramento economy.This income boost helps families afford winter coats, pay utility bills and even save for homeownership.

The Program can only succeed with volunteers like you!

 

Make a Difference: Each tax return completed by a volunteer can raise a working family’s income by up to $5,600.
No Professional Experience Needed: If you can do your own taxes, you can learn to do someone else’s taxes!  All volunteers receive free IRS training and certification.
Flexible Hours: You can volunteer evenings and/or weekends.
Flexible Locations: You choose from 10 sites in neighborhoods throughout Sacramento.
Advance Your Career: A great resume building experience!
Opportunities for Everyone: In addition to completing tax returns, we need volunteers to greet customers and provide administrative support.
Find the role that best fits your skills and interests: Typically volunteers commit 3-4 hours each week during the tax season, mid-January through mid-April.
