It’s tax time. ULV VITA students can help!

Tax time isn’t everyone’s favorite time of year. But the VITA program at  the University of  La Verne is now available to lighten the tax prep burden for eligible taxpayers. Tax preparation services are provided every Saturday from February 4 to April 6 this year, from 9am to 12:30pm.

IRS-certified student volunteers from the College of Business will help qualified community members with filing their taxes both electronically or with paper at no cost between the hours of 9 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., at the Cogley Building located at 2180 Third Street in La Verne, 91750. Scheduling an appointment time is strongly encouraged. While walk-ins are welcome, they will be served only if space is available.
