I've made pitches before, but I thought I'd give one more since my VITA materials arrived yesterday. VITA, the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program, is an IRS-sponsored tax preparation program for people with special needs.

In exchange for a commitment to prepare returns four about 4 hours per week from Feb. 1 through Apr. 15, volunteers get good basic training in tax law and a chance to give something back to their communities. I've been doing it for years, and it's one of the most rewarding things I've done. If you're interested, contact your Taxpayer Education coordinator. You can find a contact number by clicking on your state at http://www.irs.gov/where_file/index.html.

It's also not too late for a visit to www.foolanthropy.com. Remember, you have until Sunday to make tax-deductible year 2000 charitable contributions.

Since this will be my final commercial message for 2000, a Happy New Year to all. May we all have lots of extra income to report in 2001.

No. Only preparers for pay are required to sign returns, and VITA volunteers are prohibited from accepting payment (for preparation of VITA returns). The returns are shown as VITA returns in the preparer data section so IRS can gather stats on the program.
