About VITA
Help hard working households save money by providing free, tax preparation services to moderate and low income Pierce County residents! The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program is coordinated by a team of partnering organizations to aid thousands of tax payers each year. This year especially, in the recent economic downturn, we expect to see a rise in the number of eligible taxpayers who will need this assistance. Support with tax preparation can make an enormous difference to an individual or family who may not know how to maximize their tax refunds and credits.


Volunteer Roles

We are looking for remote and in-person volunteers to help with:

  • Greeting taxpayers and conducting intakes
  • Preparing taxes
  • Coordinating tax sites
  • Reviewing tax returns for quality assurance
  • Interpreting for non-English speakers

This is a great opportunity to gain experience in:

  • Accounting and Finance
  • Social work and human services
  • Customer service
  • Leadership

No prior experience necessary - Free training is provided!


Volunteering During COVID-19
Many volunteers will be able to serve remotely, though there will be a few sites open throughout Pierce County to serve taxpayers who have less access to computers. In-person volunteer service will have limited direct contact with taxpayers, and will adhere to CDC safety guidelines.
