VITA -- Volunteer Income Tax Assistance

VITA stands for Volunteer Income Tax Assistance.  The program is designed by the IRS to provide tax preparation for those that do not know how to prepare their own return and do not wish to pay to have their return done.  It is a terrific opportunity for you to give back to the community and to add to your tax preparation knowledge with real-life experience.

Training will be provided for those who are interested in volunteering, so taking a tax class currently or in the past is not necessary.  Anyone that would like to volunteer is welcome!

 

VITA Schedule
We are very excited to host two VITA sites to help people file their 2013 tax returns: one at Weber's main campus and one at the Davis campus. There will be 4 sessions each week, 2 at the Davis Campus and 2 at the Ogden Campus. The Ogden Campus schedule will be Tuesday nights from 5 pm until 8 pm and Thursday afternoons from noon until 3 pm. The Davis Campus will be Friday nights from 5 pm until 8 pm and Saturday mornings from 9 am until noon. 

This year the two sites are open from February 3rd to March 8th. The site times are:
 
Ogden Campus: (Wattis Building Room 120)
Tuesday evenings from 5:00 - 8:00 pm 
Thursday afternoons from 12:00pm - 3:00 pm
 
Davis Campus: (Building D2 Room 101)
Friday evenings from 5:00 - 8:00 pm
Saturday mornings from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
 
You are welcome to volunteer for one time frame a week, or more as your schedule will allow.  If you are an Beta Alpha Psi initiate looking to get your 40 hours this is a terrific way to accumulate them!
