Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA)

VITA | Volunteer Income Tax Assistance

We want to help put money back into your pockets. The Social Development Commission (SDC)’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program provides free tax preparation services that can help keep you from paying between $200-$600 for a tax return.

We can help you save money and overcome the challenges of working with for-profit tax preparers. 

VITA is more than just free tax preparation.

Our VITA staff and volunteers are trained on all of the latest tax law changes. Through VITA, SDC is able to help thousands of individuals and families throughout Milwaukee County each year.

SDC’s IRS-Certified Preparers are ready to help you with:

  • FREE preparation and e-filing of your tax return
  • Screening to help you claim your Earned Income Tax Credits and Child Tax Credits
  • Online Self-Prep using FREE software with Tax Preparer assistance. No income restrictions for Self-Prep
  • Homestead filing

SDC’s main North Avenue office is open for year-round assistance. Please call 414.906.2700 if you have any questions.
