Eight volunteers needed for local tax assistance program

August 29, 2016

NIU’s Department of Accountancy is proud to once again partner with Goodwill to host the Voluntary Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. This program will take place from January 31st until tax week (April 10-15) in the Holmes Student Center Gallery Lounge.

Tax-timeWe need volunteers to help us bring this great program to NIU and the surrounding community. NIU is looking for eight customer service specialists. Volunteers can be students, faculty, staff or community members. Customer service specialists are responsible for running the front desk, checking people in and customer service on the VITA site. No experience is needed and volunteers do not have to be tax experts. Training is provided. Volunteers will work a four-hour shift every other Tuesday throughout tax season. It is a great way to give back to your community and to build your resume.

If you would like to volunteer or have any questions about the VITA program, contact Lisa Holland, Financial Cents coordinator in the Office of Student Academic Success, at [email protected] or at 815-753-HELP.
