Use your communication skills and your knowledge of accounting to help area community members with their taxes through the UW-Eau Claire Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. As a VITA volunteer you will interview clients, and prepare and file their tax returns. Not only will you feel great, but you will satisfy at least half of your service-learning requirements for graduation!
What is VITA?
VITA is a special program of the IRS and the Wisconsin Department of Revenue that provides tax-return assistance to low-income individuals and families at various sites on and off campus. For over 20 years, UW-Eau Claire students have participated in this experience, which is now part of Accounting 404.
