Business & Hospitality Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA)

Penn College Accounting and Business students participate in the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. This free service is designed to offer tax assistance to low income individuals and families. Our students are IRS-certified to provide basic tax return preparation and filing.

Visit the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) website for more information about the VITA program.

We have moved to a walk-in format, no appointment necessary. Hours of operation will be used for interview / drop-off of tax return information and pick-up of finalized returns. Appointments will only be made to accommodate special circumstances.

VITA representatives will be available starting Monday, February 4. Due to high demand the VITA program will stop accepting new clients after Thursday, March 28.
(Note: Student tax returns also done and at no charge)
