The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program is looking for more volunteers! VITA is a low-commitment opportunity to get more involved in New Haven by providing low-income residents with free tax services. Plus, you’ll learn how to prepare taxes which is a valuable life skill. In past years, we have helped anywhere upwards of 1000 families file their tax returns.
VITA is especially in need of intake coordinators and tax preparers (no previous tax knowledge necessary). These commitments are only 2 hours per week. We have weekly training lessons to get you up to speed on tax knowledge if you’d like to be a preparer!
If you are interested in getting involved with VITA this semester, please fill out THIS form as soon as possible to receive more information about certifying as a volunteer!
