Lifeline Offers Clients & Community Members FREE Tax Assistance 

VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) provides free tax preparation and electronic filing services to North County households with less than $57,500 annual income. In 2021, 21 VITA preparers dedicated 870 hours to help file 223 tax returns for low- and moderate-income residents - returning more than $468,000 to our community. In agreement with COVID-19 measures, Lifeline’s VITA program conducted all-volunteer training online and will offer tax preparation drop-off services and virtual appointments to the public beginning February 2022 running through April 12.
