Established in 2010, the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program at UC Berkeley is a year-long program that prepares student volunteers to provide free tax-filing services to low- and moderate-income earning individuals and families in the East Bay. VITA students prepare for the IRS-sponsored VITA Certification Exam and learn about beneficial tax policies in relation to socioeconomic inequality in the fall, then volunteer at community tax preparation sites in the spring.
VITA leaders receive the prestigious Chancellor’s Award for Public Service
The VITA program has benefited from the generous support of the Associated Students of the University of California and the Cooperative Center Federal Credit Union.
