Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA)
Through VITA, a program sponsored by the IRS, you help lower income taxpayers and fellow students prepare their income tax returns at one of several locations in the Green Bay area for a couple of hours each week between February 15 and April 15. As a VITA volunteer, you get hands-on experience in dealing with clients and applying principles you learn in the classroom to real life situations, which should prove helpful in your professional career. In addition, you will gain a great sense of satisfaction from having provided a valuable service to the community and the taxpayers you assist. Visit the VITA site.
