A key component of success in building financial stability is ensuring hardworking families get the tax credits they are eligible for through free, high-quality tax preparation services. The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program is a trusted public-private partnership that can help low to moderate-income taxpayers navigate the new tax code with the help of certified volunteers.
Recently, Congress increased funding for this bipartisan program to $18 million. While this increase is a step in the right direction – there’s more that needs to happen. Ask Congress to fight for VITA, and to shore up investments further to meet the ever-growing demand.
