Volunteer for VITA in Johnson County
The IRS's Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program offers free basic tax return preparation to qualified individuals who make a under a set income threshold (which changes from year to year).
This VITA site is a partnership between Johnson County K-State Research and Extension, El Centro, Inc., and Kansas City Metropolitan Tax Coalition. In 2023, this VITA site prepared 1,375 federal tax returns. That's a lot of work, and powered by volunteers!

If you like working with people, enjoy working with numbers, and want to give back to your community, consider becoming a VITA volunteer. All VITA site staff are trained and certified by the IRS to complete federal income tax returns, as well as returns from any state.
Besides tax preparers, volunteers are needed as greeters, document reviewers, and site helpers.
