The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program (VITA) is designed to help working, low to mid-income level families and individuals file their income tax returns. The program and tax assistance workshops are staffed by volunteers who receive IRS-certified training that began in mid-December. Volunteers are trained to help taxpayers learn if they qualify for special tax credits such as the Child Tax Credit, Credit for the Elderly or the Disabled, and the Earned Income Tax Credit; credits can be as much as $6,000.

To qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) families must be working, have three or more children, and have earned no more than $51,000 in 2016. Individuals with no children who earned less than $14,000 may also qualify.  Click here to learn more on the EITC.

There are over a dozen VITA sites located throughout Sacramento County and several offer tax services on Saturdays. All locations also offer an easy to use, self-serve kiosk to electronically file income tax returns for individuals making $58,000 or less.
