The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program is a program of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and offered to communities across the United States in thousands of sites each year. Since 2004 Life Transforming Ministries (LTM) has been certified by the IRS within their VITA program and has been operating sites in Chester County. Our role is to recruit and help train volunteers, who must pass an IRS examination in order to complete tax returns. They are not paid and serve customers out of their own interest in serving the community. We then organize sites where returns are prepared by volunteers using IRS approved tax preparation software provided at no cost to our organization. http://www.irs.gov/Individuals/Free-Tax-Return-Preparation-for-You-by-Volunteers
Life Transforming Ministries
Life Transforming Ministries (LTM) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Our organization is supported by a friendship-based collaboration of area Pastors and Christian leaders who believe that the Church is God’s unique transforming agency in the world. We are continually asking, “What can Christians or churches do better together that we have been doing separately?” Our desire is to complete, not compete, so we are not in competition with any local church or para church organization. LTM has developed and manages several programs that focus on leadership development and needs-based community outreach including the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA) in Chester County.
