Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA)

What is VITA? 

The VITA program provides free income tax preparation to low-income individuals and families throughout the Inland Empire during the tax return season. In addition, services for low income senior citizens, non-English speakers, and the disabled are provided. 

In 2019, due to the high demand for this valuable service, a $66,000 maximum gross income per return has been implemented for taxpayers seeking assistance. In addition, Social Security Cards or ITIN cards are required for taxpayer, spouse, and all dependents. Picture identification is necessary for taxpayer and spouse. 

All taxpayers, including both spouses if filing joint returns, must be present when tax returns are being prepared.
