The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA) offers free tax help to
low-income-to-moderate income persons. Volunteers assist in filling out
tax returns, and offer consultations on special credits, such as Earned Income
Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit. The program is coordinated locally by the
Boston Earned Income Tax Coalition.
New volunteers are encouraged to attend this training, where they will be
oriented to the program and learn basic tax law as well as get trained to use
TaxWise, the tax preparation software provided by the IRS. After this
training, volunteers will be eligible to take the IRS’s certification exam,
either on their own or at one of the Testing and Certification sessions.
This is an accelerated training for volunteers from the
BBA. Law students are encouraged to attend the training. Please note that
due to space, the training will be limited to 30 volunteers.
