Our mission is two-fold:
1. To provide free income tax return preparation assistance year-round, for people whose income level, age or disability makes it unnecessary or impractical to seek paid professional assistance.
2. To offer financial capability education in collaboration with six other agencies in the United Way Community Impact Partnership - Income Area, to reduce the poverty rate in Larimer County by 50% by 2025.

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program has been in existence for over 40 years, offering free tax help to people who cannot afford professional assistance. VITA volunteers help prepare tax returns for taxpayers with disabilities, those with low to limited imcome, the homebound, non-English speaking persons and the elderly.
Volunteers come from all backgrounds and undergo a comprehensive training program. Tax preparers must pass annual certifying exams to prove their understanding of relevant tax laws and proficiency of e-filing and tax preparation methods using IRS-approved software.
Volunteers may work at established sites in Fort Collins, Loveland and Windsor and at "mobile" sites within Larimer and Weld counties.
