I am pleased to report on another transformative year for the CSUN VITA Clinic. As you may recall, last year the clinic experienced an exponential growth, serving more than 3,600 taxpayers -- almost a tenfold increase from the previous year. Powered with almost 350 student volunteers, this year the CSUN VITA Clinic provided free tax preparation services to over 6,000 low-income taxpayers in our community.
