The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program is a national program sponsored by the IRS. VITA is implemented in the Northern Virigina area by Fairfax, Loudoun and Prince William County Governments and various community organizations. Together, we make up a coalition called NVACASH – the Northern Virginia coalition for Creating Assets, Savings and Hope.
Each tax season, VITA volunteers all over the country prepare federal and state tax returns for low-income families – those making $52,000 and less in 2013 – in public libraries and community centers, and on college campuses. Here, in Northern Virginia, over 400 NVACASH-VITA volunteers staffed 20 sites, located throughout Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax, Fauquier, Loudoun and Prince William Counties.
NVACASH-VITA volunteers prepared over 5,500 tax returns in the 2012 filing season. Clients received over $8 million in refunds and credits and saved over $1.1 million in professional filing fees.
