How to File your 2021 Taxes

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) is a national program sponsored by the IRS to provide free tax preparation for qualified residents. The CA$H Coalition has partnered with local agencies and community services to create a network of VITA volunteers who serve residents of Albany, Columbia, Greene, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady, and Schoharie Counties.

Become a Certified Tax Preparer 

VITA couldn’t exist without the help of our volunteers.

Each year we rely on local residents who volunteer as tax preparers at multiple VITA sites throughout the Capital Region.

We’re always looking for individuals who would like to help prepare tax returns, answer the phones and make appointments, and more.

Our volunteers come from all types of backgrounds and professions. Don’t think you have to be an accountant to be a successful volunteer. Our training program and easy-to-use software will prepare you to successfully help others prepare their taxes.

Our volunteers are offered a no-cost, comprehensive training program that will prepare you to take the IRS certification test.
