CSUN's VITA Program helps vets prepare their taxes — for free (via Military Times)

March 14, 2019

A student volunteer at California State University, Northridge's VITA Clinic helps a taxpayer with tax preparation at the David Nazarian College of Business and Economics.

The Veteran Peer-to-Peer EITC Campaign is a collaboration between the university, Citi Community Development, the Los Angeles VA, the L.A. Mayor’s Office of Veteran Affairs and a few L.A.-based veterans service organizations. EITC stands for earned income tax credit, a benefit available to individuals and couples with low-to-moderate income.

The Veteran Peer-to-Peer EITC Campaign, located in the greater Los Angeles area, offers veterans help preparing their tax returns. Who’s helping? Fellow veterans — who also happen to be trained tax preparers.

“We all kind of sit down and really focus on getting [our taxes] done,” said Ruth Christopherson, senior vice president with Citi Community Development. “It’s a lot of work; it’s nerve-wracking. When you can do it with a volunteer income-tax preparer, it’s easier.”
