VITA VolunteerVITA couldn’t exist without the help of our volunteers.  Last year 42 local residents volunteered as tax preparers at multiple VITA sites throughout Warren and Washington counties.  This year we hope to grow our outreach efforts even more by welcoming additional volunteers.

Through the help of the IRS, our volunteers are offered a comprehensive training program to learn about how to prepare taxes.  Once ready, they complete a standardized test to become a certified VITA volunteer.  Different levels are available.  Many volunteers choose to help with “basic” returns, while others enjoy the challenge of preparing more advanced tax returns.
