VITA Tax Assistance Program


Out of an abundance of caution and to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus, or COVID-19, certain Chickasaw Nation events, classes, facilities, etc., will be postponed, canceled or closed. For a complete list of postponements, cancellations or closures, visit the COVID-19 INFORMATION page. We will continue to update the list as the situation progresses.

While applications are still accepted, due to an influx in requests those submitted after April 12, 2022 are not guaranteed to be completed and filed by the tax deadline of April 18, 2022.

Free, contactless tax filing services are available to qualifying individuals and families through the volunteer income tax assistance program.

The 2022 VITA filing period begins Jan. 31.

The VITA program is assisting clients through a contactless filing process. To receive tax preparation assistance:

  1. Complete the online application and upload all necessary documents.
  2. A VITA team member will prepare the return
  3. Once complete, the VITA preparer will call or set up a Zoom meeting to review the return with the filer

VITA offices are currently closed to the public.

Before beginning the application, have the following documents ready to upload:

  • Government issued photo identification
  • Social Security cards for the filer and all dependents
  • All W-2s, 1099s, etc. (any documents that pertain to completing your tax return)
  • Voided check for direct deposit of any refund you may receive
  • If a new VITA client, please provide a copy of last year's tax return


  • Schedule F and rental income are considered out of scope
