Eligibility

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program through Goodwill NCW provides free, quality tax preparation from IRS-certified preparers to individuals and families earning up to $66,000 annually.

Our VITA program helps taxpayers access all tax credits for which they are eligible – including the Child Tax Credit (CTC), Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Wisconsin Homestead Credit. The program assists taxpayers in accessing these valuable refundable credits as well as saves taxpayers tax preparation fees.

Since 2011, the VITA program has provided over 18,500 persons with one-on-one free tax preparation service.  In 2022, the program served over 1500 individuals/families with 45 dedicated volunteers.
