WHAT IS VITA?

Every year in Fairburn and surrounding communities on the Southside of metro Atlanta, hardworking, low-to-moderate income families lack access to affordable trained tax preparers and fail to claim important tax credits. In partnership with the IRS, Phi Tau Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. will provide free tax preparation and electronic filing services by IRS-trained and certified volunteers. For more than 50 years, the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program has been providing free tax preparation services and asset building resources to working families in communities across the nation.

Join VITA and make a difference in the lives of families in your community by preparing tax returns for individual taxpayers. VITA volunteers make a direct impact on the financial well-being of thousands of households in their communities by helping them maximize their refunds and possibly receive one of the largest checks of the year---their tax refunds. Phi Tau Omega's VITA site will be open to offer assistance monthly on the 1st, 2nd and 4th Saturdays, as well as the 3rd Thursdays beginning February 2024-April 2024.  You can volunteer at your convenience according to your availability.

 

 

We are looking to fill the following positions:

Greeter/Screener – You greet everyone visiting the site to create a pleasant atmosphere. You screen taxpayers to determine the type of assistance they need and confirm they have the necessary documents to complete their tax returns. Tax law certification is not required for this position.

 

Tax Preparer – You complete and successfully certify in tax law training, including the use of electronic filing software, to provide free tax return preparation for eligible taxpayers.

 

Interpreter – You provide free language interpreter services to customers who are not fluent in English. Basic tax knowledge is helpful, but it is not required for this position.
