Overall, my experience with the program has been very positive. Personally, I have learned many things I didn't know about taxes. I know that I can still learn more about taxes, what can be deducted, and what cannot. The atmosphere was great, and I felt very comfortable supporting the program.

My experience at VITA has been very rewarding. Showing taxpayers that fulfilling their obligations doesn't have to be a headache has been enriching. Additionally, I have continued to develop my skills through the courses provided, where camaraderie is essential for our growth and to continue contributing to the community.

I enjoy being part of organizations that support the community, and gaining knowledge is a significant benefit. Last year, I decided to take the basic VITA certification class, which gave me the confidence to proceed with the advanced class. I successfully completed both courses, made new friends, and had a great time while expanding my knowledge. After obtaining my certification, I joined VITA as a volunteer and assisted at one of the sites. The appreciation I received, reflected in smiles and 'thank you's, motivated me to return and help once again. Thank you, VITA, for this wonderful experience.
