VITA Program

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program offers free tax preparation services. Volunteers are IRS certified and trained to identify taxpayers' eligibility for federal tax credits to help families get the most accurate return.

The service is available on Mondays and Thursdays from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

The VITA program, as in Volunteer Income Tax Assistance, is administered through the School of Business Administration (SOBA) and sponsored by the United Way of Volusia-Flagler Counties. This year, the program features approximately 40 Stetson students, together with 5 faculty/staff/ community volunteers who will be providing free tax services to the community members in need.

Stetson’s involvement began a decade ago in the Department of Economics before being brought to Stetson’s M.E. Rinker, Sr. Institute of Tax and Accountancy program, where it now resides. Students, however, may participate from any major across the university in what has grown into a proven win-win for both students and the community.
