Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA)

Every tax season, Community Action Marin provides assistance with filling out and filing Income Tax Returns for low-income households. To meet the increasing need for this service for the upcoming tax season, we are expanding our program. Volunteers are needed in several different roles to serve our community. Every volunteer will receive basic online training, but only those helping with tax form preparation will need advanced training. We also have many returning volunteers to help get you started!

The VITA program begins in January and runs through April 2023.  Volunteers usually serve one 4-hour shift per week. Take a look at the available jobs below with VITA in the title and join us in providing this valuable service.
