United Way of Santa Barbara County is looking for volunteers for its 2022 Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program. The VITA program is a free tax preparation service for Santa Barbara County residents who make $67,000 or less a year.
Every year, tax returns are prepared and electronically filed by IRS-certified volunteers for qualified individuals or families. Current volunteer opportunities include tax preparers, reviewers and greeters for UWSBC’s tax preparation locations.
Self-paced training for IRS certification is available online, and in-person training is tentatively scheduled in January.
For more information about training, volunteer opportunities and the VITA program, visit www.unitedwaysb.org/vita.
