NOVA CASH/ Fairfax County Government
The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program is a national program sponsored by the IRS. Each tax season, VITA volunteers all over the country prepare federal and state tax returns for low-income families – those making $54,000 and less in 2017 – in public libraries and community centers, and on college campuses. With the help of local governments, libraries, and community and faith based organizations ( 15 VITA Sites) , VITA is implemented in the Northern Virginia area throughout Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax, and Prince William Counties. Together, we make up a coalition called NVACASH – the Northern Virginia Coalition for Creating Assets, Savings and Hope.
Last year, we have assisted over 6,000 families and individuals with the help of more than 300 volunteers. We brought back over 10.5 million dollars in federal refunds to the Northern Virginia area.
