Volunteer Income Tax Assistance

CEO is offering both in-person and online (virtual) tax preparation in 2024 for the filing of 2023 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.
