This week's speaker is:
Fernley High School Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program
The IRS's Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program offers free basic tax return preparation to qualified individuals; and for the second year, Fernley High School Students will be participating in the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program. In 2022 FHS VITA students processed taxes for 59 individuals resulting in $43,340 returning to the community in refunds.
The VITA program has operated for over 50 years and offers free tax help to people who need assistance in preparing their own tax returns, including:
Persons aged 65 and over People who generally make $60,000 or less Persons with disabilities; and Limited English-speaking taxpayers
While the IRS manages the VITA Program, each site is operated by IRS partners and staffed by volunteers who want to make a difference in their communities.VITA services are not only free, but they are also a reliable and trusted source for preparing tax returns. All VITA volunteers who prepare returns must take and pass tax law training that meets or exceeds IRS standards. This training includes maintaining the privacy and confidentiality of all taxpayer information. In addition to requiring volunteers to certify their knowledge of the tax laws, the IRS requires a quality review check for every return prepared at a VITA/TCE site prior to filing. Each filing season, tens of thousands of dedicated VITA/TCE volunteers prepare millions of federal and state returns. Please visit the IRS VITA site at https://www.irs.gov/individuals/free-tax-return-preparation-for-qualifying-taxpayers if you would like additional information.FHS VITA is composed of students in grades 10-12 who have taken 2-3 years of Accounting. These students have volunteered their time outside of school to prepare for and take the IRS Certification Exams, students will continue to volunteer their time through the tax season in order to serve members of the community. Students anticipate beginning to process returns on Feb 7th; and will operate on Tues/Wed/Thurs through tax season by appointment only.If you are interested in speaking with an FHS VITA student regarding tax preparation please use the below QR Code and a student will contact you outside of school hours.
