Become a Volunteer Income Tax Preparer

 

Hello Future VITA Volunteer!

With the 2021 tax season quickly approaching, the Broward VITA Coalition would like to invite you to participate in our virtual Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program Orientation Sessions for our potential VITA volunteers.

 

What is VITA?

We are glad you asked! VITA has been one of the most visible public service programs of the IRS, helping thousands of low to moderate-income individuals annually prepare simple tax returns and claim the Earned Income Tax Credit. The VITA program relies almost exclusively on volunteers. Volunteers receive free tax law and tax preparation software training that is reviewed and approved by the IRS. Now is the perfect time to give back to the local community by assisting at one of the many VITA sites located throughout Broward County.

See below for information on how you can help your community.
