The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance or VITA service is staffed by student volunteers who are certified by the IRS.
VITA program coordinator Umar Rabbimov says offering the tax help is a great way for students to give back to the community, and for community members to get some relief from the cost of having their taxes done.
Your next chance to take advantage of the free tax assistance is Saturday from ten a.m. to five p.m. at the College of Business.
