Initiated by the IRS in 1969, VITA is a nationwide program that assists taxpayers earning up to $58,000 a year. VITA sites are generally located at community and neighborhood centers, libraries, schools, shopping malls and other convenient locations such as community colleges. BHCC operates one of the largest VITA programs in the region, preparing returns for thousands of taxpayers each year.
Volunteers in BHCC's VITA program are advanced accounting students who have passed a course in Federal Income Taxation, earned certification by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and taken additional training from the Massachusetts Department of Revenue.
VITA is a partnership between Bunker Hill Community College and the Internal Revenue Service. Tax assistance for BHCC students is funded in part by Single Stop USA.
