BCOC's community-based Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program provides free, confidential, and secure tax return preparation for those in need of tax assistance. People with low-to-moderate incomes ($54,000 or less), seniors, people with disabilities, and those with limited English skills usually qualify for this free service. Since its beginning in 2004, VITA volunteers have prepared more than 9,000 tax returns and generated refunds, credits, and preparation fee savings totaling $17.73M for low and moderate income working families.
Interested in using our service? If so, please go to our Appointments page after January 15, 2017 to learn more information about scheduling an appointment. You will also find information about refunds & credits, filing your own return through MyFreeTaxes.com, and times/locations of tax preparation sites.
Interested in volunteering? Each year, volunteers help hundreds of taxpayers improve their financial situations. Volunteers are needed to schedule appointments, greet clients, and prepare returns. Training is provided both on-site and on-line. Please consult our volunteer page for more information and please consider volunteering your time to this wonderful program!
