Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program is available starting Monday, February 16, 2015 through Wednesday, April 15, 2015.  It is sponsored by Beta Alpha Psi.


This service is provided by trained ISU accounting students through the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA). Taxpayers with household incomes of less than $55,000 are eligible. Please note that due to the complex nature of some Income Tax Returns, VITA Volunteers may not be able to provide assistance to all people. Please click here for more information.


February 16 through April 15, 2015
Assistance will not be available March 16-20 while Iowa State is closed for spring break.
