VITA Tax Prep Program Saves NE Taxpayers Thousands 

vita-logoFor the fourth consecutive year, Action Ministries in the Northeast Region provided no-cost tax preparation to its neighbors through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) programVITA offers free tax return preparation services to people who make $54,000 or less, persons with disabilities, the elderly and limited English-speaking taxpayers. With the help of a number of key community volunteers, a competent group of eight UGA students and the strong Action Ministries intern team and staff, the location completed 90+ returns. A rough estimate is that the nonprofit’s work helped save people more than $17,000 in tax prep costs, money that can be reinvested into the Athens community.
