Vet 2 Vet FREE Tax Preparation Assistance Program

Vet 2 Vet is a FREE program to assist Veterans – and their families – with tax return preparation and advice, as well as with any outstanding federal and/or state income tax issues.

The program is designed to confidentially assist Veterans and/or their families by pairing them with qualified tax professionals, who can:

  • Prepare 2013 tax returns
  • Review previous year returns for accuracy and potential errors
  • Represent individuals in front of the Internal Revenue Service and state taxing authorities
  • Provide the tools needed to stay tax compliant on a going-forward basis
  • Vet2Vet Tax Return Preparation Checklist

Our tax professionals are Certified Public Accountants (CPAs), who also served in the U.S. military so they understand the unique financial circumstances that Veterans face.
