GetYourRefund is a project of Code for America, a 501(c)3 nonprofit that partners with government to strengthen the delivery of public services through human-centered technology. GetYourRefund was started to increase application for the EITC, a highly-effective anti-poverty measure that still sees a 20% participation gap and we partner with free tax sites, known as Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) sites, to help those in need virtually file their taxes.

We offer remote flexible volunteer opportunities to connect low-income individuals with free quality tax assistance. (our website and mobile app) engages volunteers nationally to remotely serve clients who may not have a local active or physically-open VITA site, safely and securely starting their filing and virtually handing it off to trained tax preparers local to their city or town. While not requiring tax expertise, we are looking for empathetic volunteers looking to do the important economic justice work of expanding anti-poverty measures and helping get flexible cash to those it has already been allocated for.
