VITA Free Tax Preparation

Done in partnership with the IRS, The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Free Tax Preparation program is the cornerstone of the United Way’s Financial Stability work. VITA Tax Preparers ensure that all clients who qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) receive that credit as well as others. The EITC is one of the best poverty prevention tools this country has today.

Last year alone, United Way of Hunterdon County has brought more than $2 million back into the community through VITA. Thanks to the hard work of VITA volunteers, individuals and families also saved thousands of dollars in tax preparation fee. United Way of Hunterdon County offers tax preparation at the Community Volunteer Center and mobile sites throughout the County.

Unique Volunteer Opportunities:

Tax Preparers:

Volunteering to assist with tax return preparation for low-to-moderate income Hunterdon County area residents is a great way to help others while learning the ins-and-outs of tax preparation. Volunteers are trained with Internal Revenue Service (IRS) tax materials and offered additional support through United Way of Hunterdon County. 

Client Greeters:

Not interested in crunching numbers, but still looking to help? Consider volunteering as a Greeter at a free tax preparation site in Hunterdon County. Volunteer Greeters assist tax preparation clients as they fill out paperwork, ensure clients have brought in all of the paperwork needed to complete a tax return, make reminder phone calls to clients, and provide clients with additional community resources they can access once their return has been completed.
