IRS-certified students from the UB School of Management will again provide free tax preparation services to individuals and families with annual incomes below $57,000.
The service is provided by the IRS-sponsored Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program with volunteers from the UB chapter of Beta Alpha Psi, an international honors organization for accounting and finance students, and the UB Accounting Association.
New this year, to ensure the health and safety of preparers and clients, walk-in clients cannot be accommodated. All tax services will be by appointment only.
Free tax preparation will be offered from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. by appointment only. Schedule your appointment by visiting https://calendly.com/mgt-ub-vita.
