Tax season has begun once again and trained accounting students at Iowa State are prepared to help students and community members who make less than $50,000 per year. 

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program is an IRS program that is provided by trained ISU accounting students and is sponsored by Beta Alpha Psi National Honors Faternity for Financial Professionals. 

This program begins on Tuesday and continues until April 12 in the Gerdin Business building in room 2148. 

Students can make appointments online at the VITA website, and there will be limited walk-in appointments Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. 

People who are interested in getting help with their taxes should make an appointment and be sure to bring all of the required materials, which are listed in detail on the VITA website
