The Tax Access project is designed to provide a “safe place” where Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) site coordinators and volunteers can ask questions and find resources focused on how to serve people with disabilities more effectively. The Tax Access project focuses on disability issues related to VITA services including facility access, program accessibility and customer service.
