Volunteer Income Tax Assistance

Need help preparing your taxes? Do you have students who could use help?

Take advantage of this year’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. 

VITA is sponsored by DVC’s Business Department, in cooperation with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).  We have a respectable number of volunteers (30+) that includes many of our own accounting students, and we need customers who can take advantage of the volunteer tax experts. Members of the campus community and the greater community will certainly benefit from the available talent.

Please encourage your community members and students to stop by the following location and times to complete their tax returns.
