– Each February to April, VITA helps low and moderate-income households through free tax preparation.
– In 2014, about 5,000 Pierce County households were helped by free tax sites.
– For many hardworking families, tax refunds provide a chance to catch up on bills and pay for their basic needs.
How can you help?
Volunteers may serve as: 1) Tax Preparers, who complete tax returns; 2) Quality Reviewers, who check returns for accuracy; 3) Site Coordinators, who oversee tax sites; 4) Greeters, who welcome clients; and 5) Interpreters, who translate for non-English speaking or hearing-impaired customers.
No experience required, and free training is provided. VITA offers flexible hours (days, evenings and weekends) and locations throughout Pierce County. All VITA sites are IRS-approved.
