VITA Volunteer Income Tax Assistance

VITA volunteers help hardworking families receive the tax refunds they deserve by volunteering for the Earn It! Keep It! Save It! program. In 2016, volunteers helped bring almost a million dollars in refunds back to Mendocino and Lake Counties.  Many local families can't afford the cost of tax preparation.  They may not know that they qualify for Earned Income Tax credits and other credits for low income households.  Volunteers can maximize a their tax refunds, which makes families very grateful.   

Volunteers serve throughout Mendocino and Lake County - preparing tax returns and greeting clients.  No experience is necessary and free tax preparation training is provided. 

This program runs from January through April of each year.
