 Dear MATC VITA Volunteer,


We sincerely hope you've managed to stay healthy during these crazy times! We wanted to provide you with an update regarding the MATC VITA program and the upcoming tax season. Because of Covid-19, the college has implemented limitations on who can access campus and restricted on-campus activities to essential in-person classes. Therefore, we are not planning to operate our Downtown and Oak Creek VITA sites in Spring 2021.

Because of this, we are partnering with another VITA site based in Waukesha to give our students the opportunity to experience VITA and earn college credit, give our volunteers the chance to continue their service, and provide an alternative to our clients needing tax assistance. The Waukesha site will offer a variety of options including in-person, drop-off, drive-through, and 100% virtual tax preparation Monday through Saturday during tax season. Danica and I will both be working closely with the Waukesha program and we plan to offer certification training sessions in December and January. 

While we are disappointed that things will not be operating as normal this tax season, we are excited about this partnership and we hope you will consider volunteering again. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out.

Stay healthy!

Nell & Danica
MATC VITA Site Coordinators
