Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA)

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) tax filing

Shaw University's Volunteer Income Tax Assistance site (VITA) offers free and reliable tax filing services that can ease the stress of tax filing and help you get the most out of your tax return.

Tax preparation begins in early February and ends in early April.

VITA is an IRS-sponsored program that provides free tax preparation for those who earn less than about $57,000. Accuracy is a priority. In fact, free tax preparation programs have an accuracy rate of over 90 percent, the highest in the industry. The annual training that VITA volunteers undergo helps prevent the IRS from performing additional verification and reduces the time taxpayers spend to get tax filing mistakes corrected.
