All students are encouraged to register for VITA this SP 2023, Pass/Fail graded, service learning course taught by JCU Professor Emeritus Jerry Weinstein. Sign up based on class status:

The VITA program helps low to moderate income individuals and families prepare their income tax returns without paying fees to professional preparers. The VITA program serves low wage workers, particulary those in families with children, who may be eligible for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). The EITC is a major way to help alleviate poverty among greater Clevelanders. Last year, JCU students helped provide needy families with millions of dollars of refunds.
