Windham Chamber is partnering with United Way to recruit volunteers for the Windham Region to become VITA volunteers and help our neighbors complete their taxes. Anyone can do this as the returns are very basic, training is included. A great way to help your community and provide a very much needed service.
Putting Money Back in People’s Pockets is Priceless.Are you interested in an IRS certification to add to your resume, or looking to give back to our community by utilizing your strengths?
If so, the 2014 Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Campaign is your perfect fit! Join in the community-wide effort to help families get the tax refunds they’ve earned. VITA gives families an extra boost to get ahead financially, pay down debt and work toward saving for the future.
The VITA program offers free tax help for households with an annual income of less than $50,000.
IRS-trained volunteers prepare and electronically file state and federal income tax forms at no charge. They ensure that taxpayers claim the proper tax credits and refunds, including the federal Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), a tax credit available to lower-to-moderate wage-earning families, and the Connecticut Earned Income Tax Credit (CT-EITC).
