Pile of dollar bills.

Ohio Northern University’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program is again offering free income tax preparation for community members who make about $70,000 or less annually.

In turn, this service enables ONU’s Dicke College of Business Administration students to receive practical training with tax preparation software and interpersonal communication, and to become IRS-certified to help prepare basic and intermediate tax returns. Students also gain experience in identifying and helping clients claim special credits such as the Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit and Credit for the Elderly, which can significantly influence filing outcomes.

Services include offering general filing guidance, completing tax returns for individuals, and e-filing those returns with the IRS.

On-campus appointments at the Dicke College of Business Administration will be held starting Tuesday, Feb. 20 and running through March 27.

For more information about ONU’s 2024 VITA program or to schedule an appointment, please call 91ֱbusiness professor and VITA site coordinator Professor Yan Zhou at 419-772-2075 or by email at vita@onu.edu.
