Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA)

The VITA program provides Taxpayers with Income Tax Returns at no cost.

The VITA Program offers free tax preparation services to households.

Trained by the IRS, the tax preparers at HOPES assist with special credits, such as Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), Child Tax Credit, and Credit for the Elderly. Income Tax preparation is conducted during tax season, February through April.

In addition to free tax return preparation, individuals may also file electronically (e-filing) through HOPES Individuals taking advantage of the e-file program receive their refunds quicker (almost half the time) than paper filed returns - even faster if you have your refund deposited directly into your bank account. HOPES CAP, Inc. VITA Program operates out of several sites in Hudson, Union, and Somerset County. Please click here to see a location schedule for the HOPES CAP, Inc. VITA program.
