FREE Income Tax Preparation by IRS-Certified Volunteers
Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) is an IRS program that provides free income tax preparation to low-income, students, elderly, non-resident, disabled, and limited English proficient individuals.
Our CSULB site is available to qualifying taxpayers with an income level of $51,000 or less. IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation with electronic filing for federal and state tax returns. They can inform taxpayers about special tax credits for which they may qualify such as Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, and Credit for the Elderly or the Disabled. Don’t put off your taxes!
