The free tax prep service is offered through United Way of the Plains in partnership with the IRS. United Way administers the grant from the IRS and provides coalition coordination. VITA volunteers, who are trained and certified by the IRS, provide assistance to individuals who qualify and help them obtain credits for which they are eligible (including the Earned Income Tax Credit).

The IRS is a founding partner of the BE$T Coalition that offers free tax prep services under the guidance of United Way.

You have the power to help others on the road to financial stability. Every year, millions of dollars in tax credits go unclaimed because people simply don’t know they are eligible. You can help those individuals by volunteering through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. Join forces with 200+ volunteers who make the program a success every year.

This volunteer opportunity is great for young professionals looking to build their resumes, retirees wanting a temporary volunteer gig and anyone with a passion to help others.
