VITA Program provides free tax prep in SB County

It's tax time and a group of volunteers in Santa Barbara County is helping low-income residents file their returns for free.

If you made less than $49,000 last year and you are not self-employed the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program, or VITA, could be for you.

This year more than 250 volunteers will be helping residents throughout the county. Organizers say the need grows every year.

"In the first year we did about 300 returns total and then this last year we did 1300, our goal this year is 1500," said Sandy Soria of the Northern Santa Barbara County United Way.

The program has sites in Santa Maria, Lompoc, Solvang and New Cuyama. Volunteers will be available every Saturday through April2.
