About VITA:
WWU’s VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) is a program sponsored by WWU’s Beta Alpha Psi in cooperation with the Internal Revenue Service to provide free tax preparation and assistance to individuals with low-to-moderate income. We have tax counselors available to assist students and community members.  All tax returns prepared at our VITA site are e-filed (electronically filed) as part of our free service.
