VITA The IRS yesterday released (IR-2010-111) a list of the 177 organizations in all 50 states and the District of Columbia that received $11 million in matching grants to support their Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Programs for the 2011 filing season. 374 organizations submitted applications requesting more than $33 million in matching funds in the third year of the VITA grant program.

Lest someone think this is a case of IRS transparency, the agency also doles out money for TCE (Tax Counseling for the Elderly) programs, of which AARP is most likely the major beneficiary. Last year I asked them for information on the amount and recipients of TCE grants. A few months later IRS emailed me:

>>We have not got authorization to post the TCE Grant recipients publicly. The only current way you can obtain this listing is to submit a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the IRS. Thank you for your interest.
