2024 VITA Sites Serving Current & Former Foster Youth

Last Updated Jan 30, 2023

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Sites are certified by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to assist low- and moderate-income taxpayers to file their taxes for free.

VITA volunteers have a much higher accuracy rate than paid tax preparers who often make mistakes and often miss the new Foster Youth Tax Credit, worth up to $1,117 in 2024.

If a young adult is looking for free, one-on-one assistance with completing their taxes, a VITA site is a good option. There are a handful of organizations serving current and former foster youth that have partnered with JBAY to become VITA sites and assist this population with filing their taxes and claiming the Foster Youth Tax Credit. 

This roster lists each of the foster youth-serving VITA sites by county, as well as provides a link to locate other general VITA sites they may visit if there is no local foster youth VITA site. Sites are offering appointments from the start of tax season through at least June 2024.
