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.

how to qualify for VITA

A New Leaf’s VITA program offers free tax assistance to households who make $56,000 or less. Services focus on community members with disabilities, the elderly, veterans, Native Americans, the homeless population, and limited English speaking taxpayers who need assistance preparing their tax returns.
