Goodwill of East Central WI has a variety of programs including their thrift stores. One vital program is the VITA program. VITA stands for Volunteer Income Tax Program. Volunteers can help in a variety of ways - some without knowing anything about the tax code!
Tax Preparers are trained and shadow more seasoned tax preparers. No one is doing this alone. One long tem volunteer says that asking each other questions is a regular occurance at VITA. No one can know it all so we all work together to serve our clients best interest. What really excites the VITA workers is when they can get money back for the client. there are programs that people just don't know enough about that can save them money. That is exciting!
