Tax Preparation – Citizens for Citizens, Inc.

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA)

It’s a fact. The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Child Tax Credit (CTC) help keep thousands of families from falling into poverty every year.

Filing taxes can be a confusing and expensive process to navigate, making it harder for struggling families to receive these crucial tax credits. With the help of CFC’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program, trained volunteers work to prepare and electronically file income tax returns for eligible, low-income families for free, enabling more families to take advantage of EITC and CTC. Volunteers will also help provide financial literacy training and resources to participating families.
