Volunteer Income Tax Assistance

CEO is currently putting the finishing touches on our 2023 VITA schedule. We will be offering both in-person and online (virtual) tax preparation in 2023 for the filing of 2022 taxes. Virtual VITA means that taxpayers who meet the eligibility criteria will upload his/her/their tax documents to a secure IRS sponsored website called “Get Your Refund” and a certified volunteer tax preparer will complete the taxes and file them upon approval from the taxpayer. In-person services will be available in a limited capacity on Wednesdays during tax season.

CEO is not hosting AARP tax preparation. Please call 888-227-7669 for more information and to find an AARP site near you.
