VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) provides domestic and international tax service at the Isenberg School of Management.
FOR THOSE WHO HAVE NOT YET FILED 2019 TAX RETURNS
VITA will no longer be able to provide tax preparation services for the remainder of the year due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Students will not be on campus to prepare tax returns. Tax returns will have to be prepared by the taxpayer, another VITA site or a paid professional.
DOMESTIC AND RESIDENT ALIEN TAXPAYERS:
There are free resources to file your income tax return through the IRS and MA Department of Revenue websites.
If you live or work(ed) in another state, you will have to file a tax return in the states that you worked and/or live in.
DO NOT USE FREE FILE SITES TO FILE YOUR TAX RETURN AS THOSE ARE NOT FOR NONRESIDENT ALIENS
