Tax season will be here
before we know it and we are looking for volunteers for the VITA program at Milwaukee Area
Technical College. The VITA program offers free services to lower-income
individuals, those with disabilities, and others in the community who need help
filing their tax returns. Volunteers complete training to become certified by
the IRS to provide free basic income tax return preparation services.
Volunteering with VITA
is an excellent opportunity to get real-world practical experience and
volunteer hours that look great on a resume. It's also a chance to make a
significant impact in the lives of those in the community.
Students have two options:
1. Volunteer for VITA without class credit, and add tax experience to your resume
2. Register for our new course Acctg 155 in Spring and earn class credit while volunteering!
During the upcoming
tax season (February through mid-April), VITA will run on Tuesday evenings
(6-9 PM) at the MATC Milwaukee Campus and on
Saturday mornings (8:30 - noon) at the MATC South Campus. We welcome all volunteers,
whether they are available only a few times or throughout the entire tax
season. (Except for Acctg 155 students)
If you are interested
in volunteering, please SAVE THE DATE for one of the
following training sessions. Note that if you volunteered in the
past, you will still need to complete the required training for the upcoming
