Volunteers needed to provide assistance for upcoming tax season

The Coastal Bend Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Coalition seeks volunteers to provide tax preparation assistance during the 2020 tax filing season. VITA provides free income tax filing services for qualifying individuals and families, allowing them to retain more of their income by avoiding fees and utilizing tax credits.

There are no prerequisites for those interested in volunteering. All volunteers must complete an IRS-certified VITA training and pass the certification test before assisting taxpayers. All materials and training are supplied free of charge by the IRS to certify volunteers as VITA tax preparers. 

A free two-day IRS-certified VITA training will be held:

Saturday, Nov. 9, and Saturday, Nov. 23, from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Del Mar College-East Campus
Venters Business Building, 2nd floor computer lab

Those wishing to attend our two-day training are asked to RSVP to Jamey Byrne at jamey.byrne@uwcb.org.
