Not a Skier or Rider?

Have we got the opportunity for you!  Does the IRS tax code seem mysterious; ever wondered what credits you could really be getting?  Find out, learn a new skill, and help your community!  Those dark winter months can bring new illumination in the form of becoming a volunteer tax preparer.

For over twenty years, Capstone Community Action has partnered with the IRS in support of its local-level program to assist taxpayers earning up to $54,000 annually to have their taxes prepared and filed for free. It’s called Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) and is a wonderful way to spend some of those long, cold hours until spring.

What does a VITA tax preparer do, you ask? And how do they learn to do it? At Capstone, we provide the materials and equipment to become an IRS-certified tax preparer.  We offer group training sessions where you can learn from others, as well as the opportunity to work on your own schedule at your own pace. Then during February to April you decide when you are available to help out at a VITA tax site (along with other volunteers – you’re not alone!) and prepare taxes for central Vermonters.

It’s that simple. We demystify taxes for you! You help your neighbors! And nobody breaks a leg. For more information, call Laura at 477-5176 or email her at
