VITA Tax Preparers needed throughout the county to prepare free taxes for low to moderate income taxpayers!

Through the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program (VITA), the Cuyahoga EITC Coalition offers year round volunteer opportunities as volunteer tax preparers. Volunteers will be responsible for completing a short ethics test and preparers will complete an IRS tax certification test, then volunteers can help as often as they like at a variety of sites. Volunteer opportunity available from January 2022 through tax season (and on a limited basis May through November).

Volunteer training is provided!

Description

The Cuyahoga EITC Coalition promotes free and fair tax preparation services for middle and low-income filers. Many filers are subject to filing fees and refund anticipation loans (RALs) sold to them by private for-profit businesses. These fees and loans are avoided by using the Coalition's free tax sites throughout the city of Cleveland and Cuyahoga County. The sites are free, quick, and an efficient alternative to paid preparers.

The Coalition has seen impressive growth since the first year of operations. In 2004, 850 clients received $1.2 million in refunds at VITA sites. By 2012, 10,982 clients received $14.2 million in refunds. During the past eight years, more than 66,000 customers had their taxes prepared. As a result, they received over $84 million in refunds. These results were achieved with the help of more than 1,800 volunteers.
