Volunteer Income Tax Assistance
Participating as a member of the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance group (or VITA) Students gain hands-on experience preparing federal and state income tax returns through the VITA program sponsored by the IRS. Volunteers prepare income tax returns for students and low income tax payers. Volunteers are able to put into practice what they have learned in their tax courses and from IRS training materials. This program provides a direct benefit to local taxpayers. It is also a great resume builder for accounting students.
