Ongoing Program has Brought More Than $3 Million Back to the Community in Free Tax Returns
VACAVILLE, CA– Travis Credit Union Foundation announces today the launch of the 2024 Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) site in Vacaville, CA, an IRS initiative, providing free tax preparation services to eligible low-income individuals and families. Travis Credit Union Foundation's continued participation in VITA underscores their commitment to empowering local communities with the resources they need for financial success.
The VITA program, hosted and managed by the Travis Credit Union Foundation, offers free tax preparation services and e-filing. Assistance is available in both English and Spanish and is open to Travis Credit Union members and non-members earning less than $64,000 in annual income, senior citizens, individuals with disabilities, and those with limited English capabilities. Taxpayers with rental income (unless active-duty military) or business losses are not eligible.
Appointments are available by reservation only and will run from February 10 to April 10, 2024 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays starting at 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. The location is the Travis Credit Union Community Room, 1 Travis Way, Vacaville, CA. Appointments can be made through the foundation website.
“The 2024 VITA Tax Preparation Program is a testament to our unwavering commitment to community empowerment,” said Damian Alarcon, president of Travis Credit Union Foundation. “At Travis Credit Union Foundation, we believe in providing essential resources that bridge financial gaps, and the VITA program is a cornerstone of our efforts.”
Travis Credit Union Foundation collaborates with Free Tax Help Bay Area, a coalition led by United Way Bay Area (UWBA) in partnership with the IRS. This ensures that tax returns are prepared by trained and IRS-certified volunteers, maximizing refunds through various tax credits.
For those interested in contributing to this impactful program, volunteering opportunities are available. No prior experience is necessary, and volunteers can make tax season less taxing for local families. Please visit United Way Bay Area for more information.
