The VITA Program offers free tax help to low-to-moderate income persons.
Volunteers assist in filling out tax returns, and provide consultations on
special credits, such as Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, and Credit
for the Elderly.
No specific skill set is required, as the Earned Income Tax Coalition
welcomes all volunteers. Training is designed to teach basic tax preparation
using Taxwise, a computer software that simplifies the preparation process to
create a user-friendly experience. Volunteers are also provided with
additional resources including on-site staff support and resources for more
complicated tax situations.
The Boston EITC serves low and moderate-income taxpayers and their families.
In 2009, the EITC served 11,000 taxpayers and returned more than $19.4 millions
dollars in federal returns
