Cal State LA College of Business and Economics | VITA Tax Program

The Cal State LA VITA Program is back in operation. We will be preparing and e-filing 2020 federal and state income tax returns for qualifying families and individuals. However, because of Covid-19, our student volunteers cannot meet with you to start the process. We have partnered with several local nonprofit organizations that will do the interviews and send the documents to us for tax preparation. As always, your tax returns will be prepared and quality reviewed by IRS Certified preparers.

The Cal State Vita Program is co-sponsored by the Internal Revenue Service. For the 37th consecutive year the Cal State LA Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (Cal State LA VITA) Program will be providing electronic tax preparation and electronic filing services for Los Angeles residents, all at no cost to taxpayers.

Let us know if we can assist you this year!
