Quinnipiac’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program will offer free income tax preparation services to taxpayers with annual household incomes of $57,000 or less.

Envelopes containing information about the program and what forms are needed for tax preparation are available to residents at the Keefe Community Center, 11 Pine St., Hamden. The envelopes can be returned to a lock box at the Keefe Center for pick up.

Quinnipiac students will prepare the tax returns, which will be reviewed by Matthew Maron, assistant teaching professor of accounting and VITA program coordinator, and other professors from the School of Business.

Taxpayers then will be contacted to review their tax returns. Once the tax returns have been e-filed, hard copies will be mailed directly to the taxpayer.

“This is a great community service opportunity for the Quinnipiac accounting students to volunteer and apply what they have learned in the classroom while also relieving the stress of tax preparation for those most in need who cannot afford to pay to have their taxes prepared,” said Maron.

Quinnipiac's VITA program is part of the United Way of Greater New Haven's VITA coalition. For more information, contact Maron at (203) 582-7623 or Matthew.Maron@quinnipiac.edu.
