Want to become a VITA volunteer?


VITA couldn’t exist without the help of our volunteers. Each year we rely on local residents who volunteer as tax prepares at multiple VITA sites throughout Warren and Washington counties.

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. Many volunteers choose to help with “basic” returns, while others enjoy the challenge of preparing more advanced tax returns. Volunteers can decide which level of returns they are most comfortable preparing.

There are other volunteer opportunities, in addition to tax preparer. For more information contact:
