The Bed-Stuy site will become a VITA site for 2016.
VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) is a program set up by the IRS to help low income filers prepare returns for free, but they have certain requirements that differ from CTA's process.
1. VITA requires all volunteers to pass tests. Training materials are provided.
2. All returns must be e-filed.
3. VITA has its own checklist, and the taxpayers will need to fill it out themselves.
If you are a Former VITA preparer, you may prefer the Bed-Stuy location. Please contact email@example.com for more information.
