Each year, the College of Business and Economics partners with The Baltimore CASH Campaign to offer free federal and Maryland state income tax preparation services to low income individuals and families.
The partnership helps working families in the Baltimore region maximize their financial opportunities and resources. The service provided ensures that clients benefit from Earned Income Tax Credit, while avoiding the high costs of paid tax preparers. Free services are provided to taxpayers (individuals or families) with incomes under $53,000.
Students facilitate this Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) site on campus serving as tax preparers and site managers—applying their classroom knowledge while gaining valuable experience and helping the community.
Students are needed to serve as tax preparers and site managers. To volunteer students must successfully complete the IRS tax training program and be willing to commit 20-90 hours of service.
Volunteers are needed to serve as tax preparers and/or mentors for the student site managers. Prior experience with tax preparation is not necessary for volunteers or mentors.
Tax prep volunteers and site managers must successfully complete a free two-day tax training during the month of January and be available for at least two of the Saturday scheduled tax prep dates during the months of February, March, and April. The IRS tax training and tax preparation take place in Stephens Hall.
You can also help by spreading the word to your family, colleagues and friends.
