A New Leaf’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program provides low-to-moderate-income households in the Valley with entirely free tax preparation.

VITA is a volunteer-based program, with local accountants, financial experts, and others stepping up to help their community. By recruiting top quality volunteers and requiring rigorous training, VITA provides top-tier service to the communities it serves.

Each year, the VITA program puts countless dollars back into the pockets of hard-working families and individuals. Offering such an important service to low-income households free of charge is critical, and A New Leaf is proud to invest in our community.

VITA services

Without help, it is extremely common for households to not claim their Earned Income Tax Credit, or to make mistakes in filing that reduce their returns. A New Leaf’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program ensures that households don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars on filing their taxes, while also making sure that they receive all the tax benefits for which they are entitled.
