VITA stands for Volunteer Income Tax Assistance – a program that operates under the Internal Revenue Service and pursuant to which low-to-moderate income taxpayers can have their federal and state tax returns prepared and electronically filed for FREE.
Volunteers are the backbone and driving force of the VITA Program. They are recruited from the community, other non-profits, for-profit organizations, and educational institutions. They are required to train and pass an IRS certification exam in order to prepare tax returns and then spend evenings and weekends from late January to mid-April preparing tax returns for eligible Hawaii residents and saving them money.
Generally, you can qualify for free tax help at VITA sites if your household income does not exceed $59,000 AND you do not have a return that is considered out-of-scope for VITA.
