Tax crunch time is upon us and the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program is here to help!
The VITA program provides FREE income tax preparation assistance at no cost for members of the community who could not otherwise afford the services of a CPA tax professional. Sponsored by the IRS, VITA exists on campuses all over the US and has been on the Michigan Tech campus for over 20 years..
Tax forms are prepared by accounting and finance students who have completed an IRS training course. Students volunteer their time and talent for the program. Last year over 50 students and community members benefited from this service.
