VITA is a free, IRS-sponsored program to help low and middle-income workers have their federal and State personal income taxes prepared and filed electronically at no cost. VITA also ensures that workers receive all the tax credits to which they are entitled.

Many workers eligible for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) or Child Tax Credit (CTC) don’t feel comfortable filling out tax forms themselves. However, commercial tax preparers charge significant fees to prepare a return and offer services that can otherwise be provided at no cost at a VITA site.


People eligible for EITC and CTC have a no-cost option — they can have their returns prepared and filed at a VITA site.Every county in the State has at least one VITA site. Visit the IRS VITA site locator. Opening and closing dates vary by site as well as hours and days of operation. In addition, many sites do require an appointment.



The BRCA VITA site is currently CLOSED until March 30, 2020. We will begin rescheduling

appointments after this date. If your appointment was cancelled because of this closure,

we will contact you to reschedule. Be assured, we will work diligently to get all tax

returns or extensions filed by the April 15th deadline.
