VITA Thank You!!



We are so PROUD and THANKFUL for the dedication and impact our VITA Volunteers have on our local economy.  Our volunteers work hard at assisting low-income families and seniors in preparing and filing their income tax returns.  Each tax season nearly 300 income tax returns are prepared and filed by our volunteers. 

VITA is an IRS-sponsored program that provides training to local volunteers to complete income tax returns for local citizens.  Each year these volunteers begin training in December and must pass certification tests before they are qualified to complete income tax returns.  

Without these volunteers the people who look forward to their assistance would most likely end up at paid tax preparers. 

To become a Certified Volunteer Income Tax Preparer, or for other volunteer opportunities, contact your United Way of Lamar County, by email at or call 903-784-6642.
