An established program, the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance VITA Program has been affiliated with Ithaca College for fifteen years! Service-Learning coursework and outreach during tax time is sponsored by the School of Business, in partnership with Alternatives Federal Credit Union. As a part of their service, students from Accounting and other majors help prepare tax returns for local community members in various sites through the region. Some students in this program also travel to Alaska to prepare tax returns for members of native tribes.
