VITA Program Helps Increase Financial Stability

With tax season in the books, Catholic Charities’ Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program added some impressive numbers to the bottom line.

Through VITA, IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation with electronic filing to those who make $55,000 or less or persons with disabilities who need assistance in preparing their own tax returns.

This year, Catholic Charities expanded its program reach by providing assistance in the Leavenworth, Atchison, and Lawrence communities as well as servicing more rural areas with the Mobile Resource bus.

“VITA enables low-to moderate-income individuals and families to maximize their refunds and avoid unnecessary fees,” said Amelia Reyes, MSW, Director of Asset Development for Catholic Charities. “More importantly, the program helps them increase their financial stability.”
