Pro-Bono Tax Services: The Role of Tax Academics and Students
Tax Adviser, Vol. 36, No. 8, August 2005
Posted: 11 Dec 2005
The authors discuss the pro-bono tax service provided by the national Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, which is made possible through the efforts of accounting students and their professors, working with the IRS and state tax agencies. This comes at a particularly important time, because the IRS is reducing services at its Taxpayer Assistance Centers (TACs). Also covered are the program's eligibility requirements, recent statistics and the benefits for both taxpayers and preparers.
