Are you Interested in Assisting People In Need This Tax Season?

Consider volunteering through the IRS program VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance). Volunteers, once certified, can help those that meet income requirements file tax returns free of charge!  Alfred State is currently coordinating with the IRS, Alfred University, area school districts and the Southern Tier Library System to determine site locations and the number of volunteers needed based off expected returns to be processed.  Training is online and free to any who would like to complete it once the material becomes available in November.  Tax preparation would begin in January and end in April with dates, times and locations to be determined.  For more information on what it takes to be volunteer you may visit: IRS Tax Volunteers | Internal Revenue Service.  Interested volunteers should contact Professor Holly Chase at  You need not be a business or accounting student or even a student to volunteer!  This service is open to anyone who is interested in giving back to the community.
