We need volunteers! United Way of Greater Richmond and Petersburg’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program offers free tax preparation for families and individuals with income less than $58,000 or less. Our team of staff and volunteers prepare income tax returns for qualifying families and individuals and ensures that tax returns are accurate and everyone receives their full refund and avoids unclaimed tax credits, fees for tax preparation services and refund anticipation loans.

No prior knowledge or experience is necessary; there are a variety of roles available to match your skills and interests. We provide free classroom and virtual training to become an IRS-certified tax preparer and have volunteer roles that do not involve tax preparation. Volunteering with the program also offers continuing education credits for licensed professionals like CPA’s, attorneys and enrolled agents.
