Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program

IRS & KU logos

Each spring, law and business students from the University of Kansas provide free federal and state tax preparation services to those who qualify through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. No appointments will be scheduled. The service operates on a first-come, first-served basis, and the number of preparers varies with the site. For this reason, those seeking assistance are encouraged to show up near the start of each session. Please bring proof of identification and all relevant documentation, including proof of income and expenditures.

To qualify, taxpayers must:

  • be residents of Kansas, Missouri or Illinois;
  • make less than $52,000 per year; and
  • not itemize deductions.
