Success Stories

Leila – Free Tax Prep

Paying for tax services was never in Leila’s budget so she felt anxious around tax time. When she found out about VITA, she was overjoyed and brought her two sisters to also take advantage of this great community resource. The refund she received from Cal EITC and Federal EITC will go towards education expenses.

Gloria – Free Tax Prep

Gloria has been a long-time filer with VITA and recommends it through the OC Free Tax Prep Campaign. “When my volunteer preparer informed me about how much I was getting back, my heart fluttered. So grateful for the California Earned Income Tax Credit.”

— Gloria, a grandmother raising her grandson, Los Alamitos.
