Frequently Asked Questions:

What is VITA?

VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) is a program sponsored by the IRS and Franchise tax Board (FTB). VITA Volunteers receive training, and prepare and electronically file income tax returns for low income, elderly, and disabled taxpayers, free of charge.


Who Qualifies for the VITA program?

The Scope of the VITA program for 2024 is to provide free income tax preparation to low-income individuals and families throughout the Inland Empire. In addition, services for low income senior citizens, non-English speakers, and the disabled are provided.

Due to the high demand for this valuable service, a $60,000 maximum gross income per return has been implemented for taxpayers seeking assistance. In addition, Social Security Cards or ITIN cards are required for taxpayer, spouse, and all dependents. Picture identification is necessary for taxpayer and spouse.

All taxpayers, including both spouses if filing joint returns, must be present when tax returns are being prepared.

Who is not covered for the VITA program?

  • Nonresidents

  • Small Business Owners 

  • Foreign Students

  • Owners of rental property or farm income

  • Married Filing Separately
