Volunteering for VITA can be one of the most rewarding experiences. Giving back
to your community in a meaningful way while learning a new skill. For each hour a
volunteer contributes to VITA - $1,400 in refunds are generated and returned to
a low-income family.
With your support, we can help more families with free VITA services and ensure
they have a safe, secure filing with Free Tax Prep LA.
Certified Volunteers can RSVP here to serve at any VITA location
