VITA - Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program offers free tax preparation and filing to low- and moderate income individuals, families, persons with disabilities, the elderly and limited English speaking taxpayers who need assistance in preparing their own tax returns. IRS-certified volunteers provide basic federal, state and local income tax return preparation with electronic filing for free to qualified individuals.
