About the Program

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program  (VITA) provides free tax preparation at sites throughout the Boston area from January to April. In partnership with the Earned Income Tax Credit Coalition (EITC), volunteers for VITA help low and moderate-income taxpayers fill out tax returns, and offer consultations on special credits, such as Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, and Credit for the Elderly. Please visit the EITC website for additional information.

Each volunteer is asked to contribute approximately 12 hours of time during tax season.
