Leeward’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program has provided free, live tax preparation services for more than 30 years ranging from low-tech carbon paper copies to our now cloud-based computing. Free tax help is available for low to moderate-income (generally less than $62,000) taxpayers who need assistance with preparing their federal and Hawaii tax returns. Volunteers are trained and certified to prepare basic tax returns. Volunteers will be available to assist taxpayers on specified Saturdays, from 9am to 12pm.
