Income Tax Preparation
Volunteer Income Tax Assitance (VITA)
Since 2006, the IRS, County of Tulare, and CSET have partnered to provide free tax preparation services to Tulare County residents through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. VITA is an IRS program designed to help low and moderate-income taxpayers complete their annual tax returns at no cost. CSET’s strategy to provide these valuable services is to recruit and train a dedicated team of volunteer tax preparers.
The VITA Program prepares federal and state tax returns for families and individuals with yearly incomes below $50,000. The program can electronically file returns, which allows clients to receive tax refunds in as little as 5-10 business days with direct deposit.
Please complete the application below to become a VITA volunteer. The VITA certifications are held on four consecutive Saturdays in January, 2015 from 9:00 am - 4:00 pm. The training dates are January 10, 17, 24 and 31.
