Tax season is here & volunteers are needed!

Each spring, the IRC in San Diego provides free tax preparation as part of the IRS VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) program. In 2017, the program filed over 3,200 returns and generated $5.5 million in refunds for low-income San Diego families. This tremendous impact would not be possible without the hard work of our incredible volunteers, who work as IRS-certified tax preparers from mid-January through April.
