Welcome to The CSUN VITA Clinic

Having Served Over 3,600 Low Income Taxpayers in 2016, the CSUN VITA Clinic was the 3rd Largest (among 402 sites) Free Tax Preparation Site in the Southern California for 2016 and the First Among Universities Offering Free Tax Preparation Services in Southern California. 

Serving the public since 1970, CSUN VITA Clinic is a cost-free income tax assistance service to low-income residing in the San Fernando Valley and beyond. Our goal is to provide outstanding free tax preparation service to low income taxpayers in our community and to provide our students with quality experiential learning experience in the field of taxation.

Under the supervision of experienced tax practitioners, trained and certified CSUN students provide free tax preparation services (federal and state) to eligible low income taxpayers. Services are offered at the CSUN campus and several remote sites in the community beginning in late January through mid April each year.

The CSUN VITA Clinic is sponsored by the Bookstein Institute for Higher Education in Taxation in the Department of Accounting & Information Systems at the David Nazarian College of Business & Economics. While supported by the IRS, the CSUN VITA Clinic is not part of or affiliated with the IRS.
