The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program offers free tax help to people who generally make $54,000 or less, persons with disabilities and limited English speaking taxpayers who need assistance in preparing their own tax returns. IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation with electronic filing to qualified individuals.
The Department of Accounting in the College of Business at Jackson State University is a hosting site for the VITA services. They are located in the College of Business building in suites 201 and 210.
