Alliance is providing assistance for tax preparation to low income people through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA) Program.

If you are interested in learning more about income taxes, work with low-income families needing support, and get great experience in the accounting field, why not joining our team of VITA volunteers?

These are the areas you can help with:
