Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program

IRS & KU logos

Each spring, law 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. To qualify for assistance, you must make less than $56,000 per year and not itemize deductions.

Spring 2021 program details

Due to COVID-19, the VITA program has moved fully online for spring 2021. Volunteers will meet with clients over Zoom to create their tax returns. Sign-ups are now closed for 2021.

If you have any questions, contact the VITA office at vita@ku.edu or 785-864-9227.
