Volunteer Income Tax Assistance

Help lift hard-working families out of poverty! The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program receives funding from the Internal Revenue Service to provide FREE income tax preparation services to low- and moderate-income households from February to April 15th. This volunteer-run effort supports more than 6,000 households each year in Pierce County. This service brings millions of dollars back into our community through tax credits and refunds, and helps hard-working families pay bills and save for the future.

Tax services resuming in February 2024. Stay tuned for more information.

  • Volunteering with VITA is a great way to support your community and build skills in accounting, finance, customer service, and leadership. 
  • VITA volunteers undergo IRS training and certification, free of charge, to help with greeting taxpayers and conducting intakes*, preparing taxes, coordinating tax sites, reviewing tax returns for quality assurance, and interpreting for non-English speakers*. No prior experience is required!

*Not interested in preparing taxes? Greeters and Interpreters play an important role in providing excellent customer service to our clients.
