VITA – Free Tax Prep Program Returns to UW-W for Spring Tax Season

Editor’s note: The following press release was received from the UW-W College of Business & Economics.

Free tax prep program returns for the 2023 tax season. The IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program at UW-Whitewater will provide free tax preparation and free electronic filing of 2022 federal and state income tax returns for low and moderate-income taxpayers.

The VITA clinic is staffed by certified student preparers and supervised by faculty in the College of Business and Economics Department of Accounting. In addition to providing hands-on experience for graduate and undergraduate accounting students, the free VITA clinic helps residents of Whitewater and surrounding communities.

“We have many long-time clients who return for assistance each spring,” said Robert Meyers, accounting department lecturer and VITA program co-director. “The opportunity to apply training while working with real people is an invaluable experience for our students.”

The UW-Whitewater VITA program will be open Wednesdays from 3:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. from February 1st through April 12th. Clients will be served on a first-come, first-served basis and should arrive at least one hour before closing. No appointments are needed.

Tax preparation help will be located at the UW-Whitewater Community Engagement Center, 1260 W. Main Street, Whitewater, WI 53190 (next to Walmart). There is free parking in front of the UW-W Community Engagement Center for VITA participants.
