Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program
The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program is national and offers free help to people who make a limited income and need help preparing their tax returns. IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic tax return preparation with electronic filing. Volunteers inform taxpayers about special tax credits for which they may qualify such as Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), California EITC, Child Tax Credit, and Credit for the Elderly or the Disabled.
Locally, United Way California Capital Region and our partners offer myfreetaxes.com to help local residents save money during tax season.
