Vita- volunteer income tax assistance
Thousands of Kern County residents benefit annually from CAPK’S Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA). Volunteers are trained and IRS-certified to provide low-income residents with quality tax preparation and e-filing at no cost.
This year-round service also helps tax filers claim the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) which can return thousands of dollars to low-income working families and individuals. Our team has worked provided free tax preparation and e-filing services to local residents for more than fifteen years.
