We need volunteers for the upcoming tax season. Volunteers are a critical and vital component to the VITA program.

Our volunteers:

  • greet and screen our clients;
  • they ensure that the clients have all their necessary documents;
  • prepare and review income tax returns;
  • in some cases, they interpret for our non-English speaking clients.


You don’t have to know anything about taxes. Training material is provided in both online and hard copies.

Interested in volunteering? 

Telephone Hours

During tax season, we only answer our phones between 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.

The remaining weekdays we answer our phones between 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
