Every year, Mission: St. Louis partners with the Metro St. Louis Tax Coalition to run VITA, the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program.  It is one of many free programs offered by the IRS to assist low to moderate income families with preparing their own tax returns + is free for the clients we serve.  Through our Tax Prep program, we strive to promote financial stability + independence in the community. 

If you need help with your tax returns + have an average income of $49,000 + below, Mission: St. Louis will have specific days closer to Tax Season that you can receive free aid from IRS-certified volunteers.  

For Tax Prep to run successfully, Mission: St. Louis + VITA depend on community volunteers to assist with the tax preparations.  We provide all of the necessary training + resources, as well as the facilities + supervisors.  With your help, we can improve the economic well-being of individuals + families right in your community.  

If you are interested in volunteering or would like more information, please contact Patrick Graney-Dolan at patrick.graneydolan@missionstl.org.
