About Us


What services do we provide?

We work with families throughout McLean County Illinois and beyond, who meet current income guidelines, to prepare and e-file their federal and state income tax returns for free. There is never a charge for our services.

How can we afford to do this for free?

The Bloomington Normal VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization. We are run entirely by volunteers which keeps our expenses very low. The expenses that we do have are covered through donations of funds and supplies. We work with the IRS and the state of Illinois to coordinate VITA sites and perform administrative functions. As IRS approved VITA sites, tax returns will be prepared free of charge and without discrimination for clients meeting current income guidelines. Clients will not be asked to make any donations to the Foundation.
