Register Now for VITA and Help Others Prepare Their Income Tax Returns

Do you do your own taxes or want to learn? Then check out the VITA program!

The Center for Service and Social Action and the Boler School of Business’ Department of Accountancy are still looking to recruit and train students, faculty, staff, and alumni to participate in the federal Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, which helps low- to moderate-income individuals and families prepare their income tax returns without professional fees.

Volunteers will be asked to attend a training on Saturday, January 28, from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. and can choose from the following Saturdays in spring 2017 to volunteer: February 4, 18, and 25; March 18 and 25; and April 1 and 8.

Visit CSSA’s website for more information and to register. Contact for more information.

This year Boler’s Department of Accountancy has created a one-hour service-learning course (AC 470 for seniors, 370 for juniors, and 270 for sophomores) which will be graded pass/fail and require only that you complete the training and work two sessions preparing returns. The one-credit-hour course does not count towards the AC major, but does count towards the 150-hour requirement. Please contact Dr. Weinstein at for more information about these courses. You do not have to register for the course to participate in VITA.
