Help Low Income Families Overcome Poverty!

Every year billions of dollars in tax credits go unclaimed by low-income taxpayers who don't know they are eligible. VITA volunteers help clients apply all the appropriate tax credits, allowing the people who need it most to get the returns they deserve. Last year, more than 40 volunteers helped to prepare over 490 tax returns and returned +$420,000 in total refunds to local residents and put it back into the local economy.

We need your help to reach even more families in 2015!
