Volunteer Income Tax Assistance

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program

The College of Business Administration's Accounting Department has been preparing individual income tax returns through the Internal Revenue Service's Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program for several years. VITA is sponsored by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), California Franchise Tax Board (FTB), the Cal Poly Pomona Accounting Department.

All returns are prepared by Cal Poly Pomona juniors and seniors and recent alumni who have gone through extensive training and have passed the IRS volunteer examinations. These volunteers are supervised by Cal Poly Pomona faculty members who are also certified public accountants.

The 2020 VITA program offers free income tax preparation help on selected Saturdays and locations starting February 1 - April 11, 2020.  Please read the Volunteer Income tax Assistance   requirements section  of our website to see if you qualify for this  free tax assistance program.

No appointments are necessary at our participating sites, they are based on a first come first served basis.  For details on hours and locations, visit this link

Please note, once the program ends, VITA volunteers will not be available to answer your income tax questions. We suggest that all tax return-related inquiries be directed to local tax professionals (e.g., certified public accountants, enrolled agents, etc.) or the appropriate taxing authority (e.g., IRS, FTB).
