Volunteers

In order to participate in SDSU VITA, students must enroll in Acctg 409 during the Spring semester. There are other VITA sites in San Diego where non-SDSU students can volunteer. See the IRS VITA website for locations.

The annual tax-filing season each spring provides opportunities for San Diego State accounting majors to gain hands-on experience preparing income tax returns through VITA. Volunteers of the program perform a variety of duties. Some prepare federal and state income tax returns, while others assist clients with intake questions.

IRS Volunteers

VITA stresses critical thinking, analysis, and the development of excellent communication skills. Volunteers also develop interviewing skills on confidential matters, and learn to investigate with a human relations dimension, through this nationally recognized program.

VITA Volunteer Benefits:

  • Receive free basic training from the IRS.
  • Receive free training on using TaxWise tax software.
  • Become a certified VITA preparer for the IRS.
  • Invaluable real-world experience.
  • Certification of Appreciation from the IRS upon successful completion of the program.

Becoming a VITA volunteer is easy and rewarding. In addition to the obvious enhancement to your resume, you will meet other people who, like you, want to lend a hand at tax time. You will also have the satisfaction of knowing that you are providing a service to those who may need it the most.

So, are you interested in becoming a VITA volunteer? First, see if you have the basic requirements set forth by the IRS (Requirements). If you meet the requirements, then register online and start receiving information immediately (Sign-up Now!).
