Volunteer Income Tax Assistances needed

The Charleston Trident Urban League offers a free income tax service, known as the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA), to low-to-moderate income tax payers of the tri-county area. We are in need of volunteers to operate 16 tax sites throughout this area. Volunteers will be tax law trained and certified by the IRS. Volunteers will be asked to serve at least 4 hours a week during the coming tax season. All training and laptop computers will be provided by CTUL. Anyone can become a VITA Volunteer; you do not need to have a financial background. Please help us to provide this valuable program to residents in our community by becoming a VITA Volunteer. Contact Jack Bennett at jack.bennett@ctul.org or call 843-769-8173 Ext 23.

Our Mission:

The Charleston Trident Urban League promotes diversity and racial inclusion and provides multifaceted programs that assist African Americans and all other underserved groups to achieve social equality and economic self-sufficiency.

Since its inception in 1991, the Charleston Trident Urban League (CTUL) has created and implemented programs to improve the socioeconomic conditions for a broad range of low-country residents, specifically minority and low-income individuals. Through programming, combined with public policy initiatives, CTUL has assisted thousands of individuals and families in the Charleston community. The organization also assumes an advocacy role that addresses essential elements in the community such as promoting understanding and greater racial harmony.

CTUL is a member of the National Urban League headquartered in New York City. Founded in 1910, the National Urban League is the nation’s oldest and largest community-based movement devoted to moving African Americans, the poor and other minorities into economic and social mainstream.
