About VITA

VITA Refunds

The Bethpage Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program assists low-to-moderate income households (generally $55,000 and below) on Long Island to prepare their tax returns at no cost. Each year, our VITA program continues to grow in both number of volunteers  and the number of electronically filed returns. The Bethpage Community Development team and taxpayer assistant volunteers have served over 15,000 community members resulting in over $20.4 million in tax refunds to the Long Island economy.
