Being a VITA volunteer is more meaningful than a typical service project and involves learning a useful life skill. Because of this being a VITA volunteer requires time and preparation. Volunteers must become certified by passing online tests. But don’t worry, we’ll prepare you and help you along the way. VITA volunteers are not required to come to every VITA day or stay for the full time. You will be free to volunteer as you have time.
Training will be held the last two Saturdays of January from 9am-12pm. Please be on time. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. You will be trained on VITA standards of conduct, our site, basic tax law, and how to prepare a tax return using online software.
The VITA Site will be open on Tuesday, January 28 from 6-9pm and Saturday, February 1 from 9am-noon for volunteers to prepare their own taxes, or those of a friend, if they wish. Also, help will be available for anyone who still needs help passing the certification tests.
