Volunteer Tax Assistance (VITA)

Cbsz_MRUkAAMxvbSince 1993, MAOF has provided free tax preparation services for households whose income falls below $52,000 through its VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program).” Volunteers participate in IRS-certified training sessions, allowing MAOF to prepare approximately 1,600 tax returns each year.


Clients not only receive FREE tax preparation services, they also learn about available tax credits such as the Earned income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit and Tax Credit for Elderly of the Disabled. The VITA program is a major asset for the Los Angeles community, providing information and assistance to many individuals who would not otherwise be able to file a tax return.
