GET CERTIFIED & SERVE
Volunteering for VITA can be one of the most rewarding experiences. Not only
is volunteering a great way to give back to your community in a meaningful
way, but also a wonderful way to learn a new skill. For each hour a volunteer
contributes - $1,800 in refunds are brought back to your community.
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.
VITA services during the pandemic
Maintaining a safe environment is a priority. Volunteers can expect to work remotely with the
support of VITA staff. Client files will be securely accessed using the new TaxSlayer file upload
portal and returns will be prepared off-site by volunteers (like you!)
