Free income tax assistance on Saturdays
Cal State L.A students help local community with tax returns
Los Angeles, CA – Can’t afford to hire an accountant to complete your income tax returns? The Cal State L.A. VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) Program is here to help. For the eighth consecutive year, it will be offering free income tax services to low- to moderate-income individuals ($39,000 or less) who cannot prepare their own tax returns. Since 1998, Cal State L.A. students in the VITA program have provided free tax-preparation and filing services for fellow students and individuals from the surrounding community. The student-volunteers are all members of CSULA Beta Alpha Psi and Accounting Society. They are trained by the Internal Revenue Service and Cal State L.A. faculty in preparing basic Federal and State income tax returns. The Cal State L.A. VITA also offers free electronic filing.
The Cal State L.A. VITA site will be on the third floor of Salazar Hall, room 363. For the tax season, the site will remain open until Saturday, March 29. It operates on a first-come, first-serve basis on Saturdays, 10 a.m.-noon and 2-4 p.m. Appointments are not necessary.
