Assistance is available Tuesdays and Saturdays through April 11, with the exception of February 21, March 18, 21, or 25. The VITA clinic is held in Drinko Hall, 55 West 12th Avenue. The hours are from 5 p.m. - 8 p.m. on Tuesdays and from Noon - 3 p.m. on Saturdays.
Service is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Individuals are encouraged to arrive early and should bring their complete tax information, including forms W2, 1099, and 1098, along with a copy of last year's taxes. Assistance with international tax forms, such as the 1040NR, is not available this year.
