The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program through AACC's School of Business and Law is a free, no-strings-attached service providing income tax assistance, preparation, review and e-filing of returns for taxpayers who earned less than $60,000 in 2022. This includes both federal and state returns.
VITA 2023 will be offered in two formats, all requiring prior appointments:
Your federal and state returns are prepared by AACC students and alumni who have gone through extensive training and have passed the IRS volunteer examinations. These volunteers are supervised by AACC Business Administration/Accounting faculty members and AACC staff, many of whom are certified public accountants. During your appointment, we will meet with you, discuss your tax situation and prepare your federal and state returns. Returns will then be e-filed. If a refund is due, that money can be deposited directly into your bank account, often within a matter of days.
The program is coordinated by Oksana Fisher, C.P.A., assistant professor of Business Administration.
Appointments are available, in Arnold, Wednesdays and Saturdays beginning February 8, 2023, and ending April 8, 2023.
Drop-off appointments are available at Glen Burnie Town Center on Saturday, March 4 and March 11 only.
For information call our VITA office at 410-777-2051 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.

VITA is free, but you still must prepare for your appointment.
Before meeting with the tax preparer at AACC for your scheduled appointment, review the following information and find out what important documents and forms you need to bring with you.
If you have a complex return, you are encouraged to see a professional preparer for assistance.
Bring these items to your appointment with the tax preparer.
