About

Each February through April 15th, VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) helps low and moderate-income households through free tax preparation.

- Did you know that last year over $2 million came back to folks in Pierce County, money that might not have been refunded if it wasn’t for you? Sometimes that refund can make the difference between paying your rent and living in your car or on the streets.

- Each year, nearly 5,000 households in Pierce County are helped by free tax sites.

- For many hardworking families, tax refunds provide a chance to catch up on bills and pay for their most basic needs.

How can you help?

Volunteers may serve as: 1) Tax Preparers, who complete tax returns; 2) Quality Reviewers, who check returns for accuracy; 3) Site Coordinators, who oversee tax sites; 4) Intake Specialists, who welcome clients; and 5) Interpreters, who translate for non-English speaking or hearing-impaired customers.

No experience required, and free training is provided. VITA offers flexible hours (days, evenings and weekends) and locations throughout Pierce County. All VITA sites are IRS-approved.
