Did you know 1 in 5 low-income individuals in Los Angeles don't file a return and miss out on $375 million in tax credits? Families need your help.

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) is an IRS program that helps low-income individuals file their return, claim their refunds, and connect them to great services at no cost.

With more volunteers, more families can access free assistance and claim every dollar they deserve.

Little Tokyo Service Center (LTSC) has hosted the VITA program for the past 7 years. Taxpayers can access services in-person or virtually at our downtown LA office from February to mid April.

No previous experience required!! Learn about filing basic taxes and/or earn Continuing Education Credits. ALL VOLUNTEERS MUST COMPLETE IRS CERTIFICATION PROCESS PRIOR TO SERVING DURING SITE HOURS. NO EXCEPTIONS. Study materials and virtual training is available now.

If you are interested, please contact the LTSC VITA team by sending us an email to VITA@LTSC.ORG.
