Titans Giving Tax Assistance

It’s that time of year, again. As the dreaded tax deadline begins to loom, Mihaylo College students and alumni volunteer their tax expertise to the Cal State Fullerton community.

More than 100 certified CSUF students and alumni are taking part in Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA), an IRS-sponsored community program. VITA is a student run chapter under the guidance of accounting Professor Christopher Petruzzi.

They are offering tax return preparation and filing assistance to low income families and individuals with annual household incomes no greater than $58,000.  Clients must bring the following items:

  • valid photo I.D. and Social Security cards, plus birth dates for taxpayer, spouse and dependents
  • wage and earnings statements and financial statements applicable to a personal tax return
  • records of any payments to daycare and provider’s I.D. number
  • last year’s income tax returns, plus bank routing and account numbers for direct deposit

Volunteers will be available for assistance Mondays and Tuesdays from 4-8pm through April 13th. Services will be located in McCarthy Hall room 438 on Mondays, and room 464 on Tuesdays. For weekend convenience, tax services will also be available on Saturdays from 10-noon in Mihaylo Hall room 1112.

Assistance will be provided on a first come, first serve basis. Clients are also advised to arrive at the VITA location one hour prior to closing.

The VITA program is providing courtesy parking passes for off-campus guests. Passes are available in person at the parking booths located on the south side of campus on Folino Drive and the west side of campus on Arts Drive.

Contact Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Center at 657-278-8681 or by e-mail.

    Good Morning,

    I am a first year graduate student and would like to participate in the VITA program for the upcoming tax year. I have done this in the past as an undergrad and loved it. Please provide me with more info on the certification for this upcoming year as soon as it is available.

    I am a incoming transfer student for spring 2014 and I am wondering if I would be eligible to join VITA. Is it too late or can you join any time? How do you join?
