Volunteer for VITA!
{ See Volunteer Form Below }

As a VITA volunteer, you will be helping people who need tax help the most, those with a low to limited income, individuals with disabilities, Native Americans, non-English speaking individuals, and elderly taxpayers. There is nothing more satisfying or rewarding than volunteering your time to help those who truly need it.

Did You Know…

You can do some positive about taxes? You can help people in your community who need assistance with their tax returns. You will get FREE IRS training, and there is the immediate satisfaction you receive again and again as a VITA volunteer using your knowledge to help other people.

  • 1 in 5 households have not received earned income tax credit
  • 1 in 4 families below the poverty line who have children under 18 who have not applied for child tax credit
  • $1.5 billion refunds for 2019 not claimed
  • $33 – if you earn $33 or more in PA, you must file a tax return
  • $250 – the average cost charged by a tax preparation business

How can you help?

You have a number of choices. It depends on what you would like to do, your skills, knowledge, and availability. In addition to being a tax preparer, you could serve as a greeter/intaker, quality reviewer, appointment reminder caller, or IT. The United Way of Bradford County will have multi sites across the Bradford County in 2025. For more information, contact us at VITA@unitedwaybradfordcounty.org.
