Beyond Careers Volunteer Income Tax Asssitance (VITA) provides governmental assistance in the form of free tax preparation program for taxpayers in the low-to-moderate-income bracket with income under $58,000 per year, who otherwise would incur a cost for these services.  VITA returns thousands of dollars in Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Child Tax Credit (CTC) and other tax credits to these taxpayers.  We are able to electronically file tax returns and provide direct deposit at no cost for qualified taxpayers. 

Beyond Careers VITA will train current and future teams consisting of  CPAs, accountants, college and high school students as well as others to become IRS-Certified volunteer tax preparers at the Advance level.  Volunteers will gain community service.  Eligible volunteers can receive Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
