The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program will help families in our community who earn up to $53,000 a year to complete their 2014 tax return for FREE. VITA volunteers have been trained and certified by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and are available to assist at locations throughout California.
Eligible individuals may qualify for as much as $6,143 from the Earned Income Tax Credit. Taxpayers should bring proof of identification including social security cards, wage and earning statement(s) from employers, interest and dividend statements from banks, bank routing and account numbers for direct deposit, and a copy of last year’s federal and state returns if available.
My office has partnered with the United Way in Orange and San Diego County to provide free tax preparation services. There are also volunteers available to help throughout Imperial, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties.
