Why is this important?
As a volunteer you provide an invaluable service to your friends and neighbors.  Last year, each hour-long session provide by volunteers resulted in an average refund of more than $1,000 and close to $200 in tax preparation fees saved. All told more than $5 million in economic benefit was provided to the community.

Why am I important?
Beyond the reasons listed above, we need your help to reach more folks. Nationwide the VITA program only reached 2.5% of the eligible population.  Here in the Capital Area, we doubled this number, but know that 5% is still unacceptable and our primary barrier to being the execption to that statistic is the number of volunteers that join our program, so you and the hours you contribute truly matter.
