Volunteer Income Taxpayer Assistance

Volunteer Income Taxpayer Assistance (VITA)

SSCAC's team of IRS-certified volunteers provides free electronic income tax preparation and filing for low-income working families. Our volunteers assist
tax-payers with both federal and Massachusetts income tax returns. They can even help with amending returns and filing tax returns for prior years.

Since our VITA program started in 2007, we've grown to assist nearly
720 tax-payers, resulting in $1.4 million in refunds each year. The average federal tax refund for those served by our VITA program is $2,073.

VITA Services are by appointment only.
