Hi, I’m Deacon Jim Shanahan and I am so glad you found your way to our website.  I run the IRS-Certified VITA program for the Catholic Charities Archdiocese of Washington DC.  We help hundreds of taxpayers every year get the biggest possible refund at the lowest possible cost – FREE!  How do we do it?  Well, I consider myself blessed to be able to work with such a wonderful team of volunteers, including those pictured on this page.  I’d include pictures of all the volunteers, but there is not enough room on the page!  There are literally hundreds of volunteer tax preparers, reviewers and many more that bring a smile and dedication to helping our clients the likes of which is rarely seen.  

If you earn under $58,000 per year, and would like us to prepare your 2021 taxes at no cost, I strongly encourage you to register today!   A member of our team will then reach out to get you started.  Have a blessed day.
