The SUNY New Paltz School of Business announces the return of the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, which provides free tax help to individuals with a gross income below $54,000.

The VITA program connects community members with certified student volunteers who have received IRS training to provide basic tax return preparation assistance and free e- filing.

The walk-in service, housed in van den Berg Hall room 208 on the New Paltz campus, will be open from Feb. 5 to April 5 (excluding the semester break from March 19-23) on the following days:

Mondays: 10 a.m.  – 8 p.m.
Wednesdays: 10 a.m.  – 8 p.m.
Thursdays: 10 a.m.  – 8 p.m.

If you are interested in taking advantage of this free service, please be sure to bring photo ID and Social Security Cards; all informational statements such as W-2s & 1099s; last year’s tax return (if available); and your bank routing and account numbers for direct deposit.
