Virtual VITA

Still, need help filing taxes?

VITA is going virtual!

Why is this happening?

To reduce the spread of the Coronavirus, MCTC VITA sites have closed. To
maintain some level of service, we are offering virtual tax assistance to those who
still need to file.

How will this work?

    1. Complete the online intake survey. The survey will ask you to:
      • Fill out basic personal information;
      • Upload pictures of your ID and social security cards of those to be claimed on the tax return
      • Upload copies of documents necessary to prepare your tax return
    2. A VITA preparer will contact you and complete your return with you over the phone or via video link. A second VITA preparer will check their work before filing.

Who is eligible for Virtual VITA?

VITA can only assist clients with the following:

    • an email address
    • either a smartphone or access to a computer with reliable Internet access

What level of security is there?

Ensuring the privacy and security of your data is a top priority. The security features are in compliance with IRS-security standards that include –

    • 256-bit SSL
    • Encrypted Forms
    • HIPAA Compliance
