Veteran Tax Fellow Program

Information Session

About the Initiative

Through generous grants from Citi Community Development, the Bookstein Institute for Higher Education in Taxation, and the U.S. Treasury Department, in January of 2018 the CSUN VITA Clinic is launching an innovative partnership to provide free tax preparation, financial education and financial coaching to Los Angeles veterans. Offered at multiple locations throughout Los Angeles County, the free services will empower veterans to serve their fellow veterans as IRS Tax Law Certified Volunteers throughout the 2018 tax season.

About Your Role

The CSUN VITA Clinic is looking to recruit, train and supervise up to 125 veterans who would like to serve as volunteer tax preparers in one of the clinic’s sites during the 2018 tax season. Each Veteran Tax Fellow will be provided with free access to the CSUN VITA Clinic’s educational training (approximately 32 hours of online and in-class training to take place in January) to become an IRS Tax Law Certified Volunteer. Once certified, the Veteran Tax Fellow will be deployed in one of 12 sites throughout Los Angeles to serve low-income veterans with free tax preparation (at least 12 hours of service).

About the Benefits to You

  • Impact the veteran community by helping and empowering low-income veterans to become financially resilient.
  • Become an IRS Tax Law Certified Volunteer.
  • Obtain skills and knowledge to prepare your own tax return.
  • Acquire valuable client interviewing skills.
  • Develop your oral communication and leadership skills.
