MU Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program Coordinator VISTA
The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program offers free tax help to people who generally make $53,000 or less, persons with disabilities, the elderly and limited English speaking taxpayers who need assistance in preparing their own tax returns. IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation with electronic filing to qualified individuals. The VITA program is housed in the University of Missouri Extension office. The VITA program is well established, but in order to take its impact to the next level, we need a VISTA to create ongoing educational programming to increase the financial capacity of VITA recipients through all months of the year, not just April.
