Volunteers are needed for the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program to help low- to moderate-income households prepare and file their taxes to ensure they get back the money they have earned.
VITA is a national program of the IRS, and volunteers are trained and certified to ensure that working families and individuals are filing for all of the appropriate tax credits. The program also helps families who might be struggling financially by saving them costly fees associated with tax preparation and rapid refund loans.
Becoming an IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistantance (VITA) Volunteer is a rewarding way to learn new skills, make friends, and strengthen your community. People Inc. will be hosting VITA Tax Sites across the Commonwealth and volunteers are critical to the success of this great program.
No prior experience is necessary. Volunteers complete comprehensive online training and are certified by the IRS. Volunteers will be trained to let taxpayers know if they qualify for additional tax credits, such as the federal and the state Earned Income Tax Credits and the Child and Dependent Care Tax Credit.
The People Inc. Woodstock Tax Site will be open by appointment only for BASIC Tax returns on Thursday's beginning 2/2.
