Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program
VITA: Students Supporting the Community
Through the official IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, current accounting students in the Heider College of Business use their skills and expertise to assist qualifying families file their taxes for free every spring.
Creighton University’s VITA program is mutually beneficial for both students and community members. Students study tax rules, IRS 1040 forms and applicable tax credits and deductions in the Principles of Taxation class, then apply this knowledge to help families in our community file their tax returns at no cost.
Starting Feb. 5 and continuing through March 26, students will offer six, in-person Saturday clinics from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Mike & Josie Harper Center on the Creighton campus. Virtual meetings via Zoom will also be offered in tandem at the following events:

- February 12: Harper Center – Rooms 2075, 2077 and 2079
