Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA), a national program, selected GRACE as a mobile site to provide free Income Tax Preparation Assistance to low-income, elderly and/or disabled people. Volunteers, certified and trained by the IRS, will provide free income tax preparation for families or individuals who earned $50,000 or less in 2011.
VITA is a volunteer-supported, national program that provides free income tax preparation for families. Catholic Charities of Fort Worth partners with United Way to implement the VITA program in Tarrant County. “It’s an honor to
have a national program choose GRACE as a host location, giving us another avenue in helping our local community,” said GRACE Executive Director Shonda Schaefer. “We are proud to work with VITA and look forward to having them here in Grapevine this year and in the future as well.”
GRACE will host VITA volunteers on four days which includes one Saturday on January 28 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Other GRACE location times are from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Wednesdays, February 1 and 29, and Monday, April 16.
To schedule an appointment with a VITA volunteer, call 2-1-1 and request the GRACE Grapevine location on 610 Shady Brook Drive. Other times and locations are available based upon zip codes. To learn about becoming a VITA volunteer, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
