Volunteer Income Tax Association
VITA is sponsored by the ABA and the IRS. As a VITA volunteer, you will gain practical training in taxation and an opportunity to develop client counseling skills. At the same time, you will be serving the community. Understanding tax matters may be helpful in a number of areas of the law; consequently, we all stand to benefit. VITA provides free income tax service (preparation of tax returns) during the tax season for the economically challenged, handicapped and the elderly. VITA serves the community, fosters good will and a community presence, provides practical experience (and training) in taxation for student volunteers to develop "client counseling skills," and fosters an active campus relationship with the ABA.
