VITA Program Temporarily Suspended


The CA$H Coalition of the Greater Capital Region to temporarily suspend VITA in-person tax preparation services, including at the site run by Catholic Charities in Albany.

After assessing the potential risks associated with COVID-19 to our volunteers and clients, the CA$H Coalition of the Greater Capital Region is suspending in-person tax preparation services at all VITA sites effective close of business Friday, March 13 through March 27.

The Coalition will reassess the situation and provide updates as needed and make every attempt to accommodate our clients who depend on this service.
In the meantime, we encourage those eligible to visit United Way’s to file. The health of our partners and volunteers is our top priority.
