Volunteer Income Tax Assistance

About Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA)

Sponsored by the Coastal Bend VITA Coalition, VITA is a collaboration of United Way of the Coastal Bend, Del Mar College, Goodwill Industries of South Texas, the Internal Revenue Service, Coastal Bend College, Nueces County Keach Family Library, Workforce Solutions of the Coastal Bend and Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. No taxpayer shall be subjected to discrimination based on race, color, sex, religion, creed, age, national origin, ancestry, pregnancy, marital status, sexual orientation, age or disability.

Trained and tested by IRS-certified instructors, VITA volunteers provide FREE income tax filing services for low-to-moderate income individuals and families. Participating taxpayers avoid fees and receive assistance obtaining all applicable tax credits. VITA's goal is to get as much income back to taxpayers as possible

Click on the links below to download PDF documents detailing volunteer training information, volunteer FAQs, and VITA locations/hours. Please note: VITA locations begin opening January 22nd. You may file at any time and your return will be queued as the IRS will not start processing forms until January 29th. The IRS has determined that returns with disaster loss claims are outside of VITA’s scope. Those claiming disaster losses are encouraged to seek filing assistance through MyFreeTaxes or other filing services. To protect against tax and identity fraud, the IRS will not start processing forms with Earned Income Tax Claims (EITC) or Additional Child Tax Credits (ACTC) until February 15th.
