VITA Volunteer/Tax Filers

Save to Favorites

BENICIA COMMUNITY ACTION COUNCIL

  • 3 people are interested

The Benicia Community Action Council is participating in our annual Free Tax Program aka VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) and we need volunteers.

Put the V in VITA and volunteer with us!

We need volunteer tax preparers to certify with the IRS and file taxes for people with earned income.

Volunteers are trained to certify with the IRS (for free). No experience necessary. Many volunteers use this as an opportunity to build their resume.

This is an incredible opportunity to solve poverty through immediate impact. Recipients of this program have been proven to break out of poverty through accessing tax credits eligible for low income filers.

Be a part of this effective program and end poverty one tax return at a time.
