VITA Tax Assistance Program


This tax service is provided to community members through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA) under the Department of Treasury Internal Revenue Service.

PPCD partners with Chief Dull Knife College Extension Service, St. Labre Youth & Family Services, Rural Dynamics, Inc. and Tax Help Montana to provide FREE income tax assistance by IRS Certified Volunteers every year from late January until April 15th. CDKC has led these VITA services for 12 years, bringing back over $19 million dollars in Federal Refund money to the community for FREE. 

Our trained staff can help explain special credits, such as Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, and Credit for the Elderly or the Disabled.


Counseling sessions are by appointment only.  Contact us

It is extremely important that each person use the correct Social Security Number. The most accurate information is usually located on your original Social Security card.  Each year hundreds of thousands of returns are delayed in processing, or credit/deductions are disallowed because names and Social Security Numbers do not match Social Security Administration records. 


To prevent processing delays in paper returns and rejected electronically filed returns, our staff member will check the accuracy of each Social Security Number, as well as the spelling of the name associated with the number.
