In partnership with United Way of the Wine Country, Community Action Partnership is offering the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. VITA provides FREE, quality tax return preparation to individuals, families, and seniors. Our preparers are volunteers certified by the IRS.Our volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation with electronic filing (federal and state) to eligible individuals. In an effort to alleviate poverty, the tax sites ensure eligible taxpayers claim the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), one of the federal government’s largest resources for low-income residents. It reduces the amount of income tax low-to-moderate income families are required to pay, and provides a wage supplemental to some families.
