Volunteer Opportunities for VITA

(Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program)    

The Social Development Commission is looking for volunteers year-round to assist us in providing our free tax service to qualifiying members of the community.

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program offers free tax help across for households with low-to-moderate incomes. Over the 2016-17 tax season, VITA volunteers prepared more than 13,000 federal and state tax returns at no cost to families. Please join us in making the 2017-18 an outstanding success by volunteering for the program and making a difference in your community. Learn more about VITA's impact.
