Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
At St Kilian VITA we serve the low income taxpayers in our community. We help them file their taxes for free. We serve all that qualify for our program, financially.
VITA at St Kilians Church in Mission Viejo, CA is a vibrant group of adults composed of local community members. Our volunteers come from varied backgrounds, some are retired financial professionals, others college students and some are members of the parish.
We help taxpayers prepare and file their taxes from the beginning of February to the end of filing season on April 15th. We serve them on Saturday mornings during tax season from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Our training in preparing taxes comes directly from the IRS. It is conducted in late October through January. We offer in-person training sessions and training online. Tests are administered by the IRS to qualify volunteers for what type of taxes they can prepare The training alone could be valued at $5,000 or more and is given to the volunteers for FREE.
Another perk of volunteering is that you are allowed to do your taxes for free and those of your family members and friends.
We also receive support from the United Way of Orange County.
We volunteer upstairs in the Parish Center at St Killian's Mission Viejo. We take good care of our volunteers. We have a fully stocked snack table, water, coffee, and tea.
If you're looking for a way to give back to your community and making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches or serving soup isn't your thing, come volunteer with us.
