New Arlington Site for Tax Preparation

The Internal Revenue Service today announced a new Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) site at American Legion Post 139 in Arlington, VA. This newly renovated site will provide both virtual and in-person tax preparation to veterans and active-duty military personnel through the end of filing season

“We are excited to be opening a new VITA site in the Arlington area and at this newly renovated American Legion post,” said Tracey Walker-Carter, Director, Stakeholder Partnerships, Education and Communication. “We hope to continue this partnership at future posts and other military bases as part of the Filing for Freedom program.”

The IRS VITA program offers free basic tax return preparation to qualified individuals. VITA sites are operated by IRS partners and staffed by volunteer preparers who are trained to meet or exceed IRS standards.   

At the Arlington American Legion Post 139 site, the volunteers are a combination of Filing for Freedom partners and other VITA volunteers.

The American Bar Association, along with numerous state CPA associations and bar associations, have joined forces to offer virtual volunteer tax preparation services for veterans and military personnel nationwide through the Filing For Freedom program.
