Valet VITA

Valet VITA is free tax assistance for busy people. We understand that you might not have time to visit a traditional VITA tax preparation site. Rather than waiting in a long line, you can bring in your information to a Valet VITA site. These sessions usually take approximately 30 minutes so you can avoid long wait times.

Your information goes into a queue to be prepared remotely by an IRS-certified volunteer tax preparer. This process can take 2-3 weeks. Then you are notified that your return is complete. You review and approve the return via text or email and your tax returns are submitted electronically for you, for FREE.

These files have all of the information you need to use Valet Vita:
