Volunteer Income Tax Assistance

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Site/Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) Initiative ensures that working Rhode Islanders who earn less than $53,000 annually have access to free tax services. There are approximately 30 VITA sites statewide every year.

How can I help?

Volunteer Tax Preparer

You can lend your time and professional skills to one of our VITA sites during tax season and help Rhode Island’s low-income working families get the tax credits and refunds they’ve earned. Training classes are required for volunteers and begin each fall.

VITA Volunteer Application

VITA Site Greeter

You can fill an important role in our VITA program by welcoming clients to sites across the state. No experience is necessary—just a willingness to help. Volunteers must be able to work with people from diverse backgrounds. Spanish-speaking is a plus, but is not required.
