The Center for Economic Progress (CEP) is proud to announce the release of Virtual VITA: Promising Practices.

Thanks to a generous grant from JPMorgan Chase Foundation, the Virtual Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) pilot program used technology to connect low- and-moderate-income taxpayers with critical tax preparation services free of charge, without requiring them to be present with the preparer and wait hours at a traditional community-based VITA site.

The report provides promising practices for VITA programs, social service organizations, policymakers, and investors looking to provide more people with improved tax preparation services. Investments such as this one by the JPMorgan Chase Foundation help practitioners to better serve their clients through innovation.
