Free Tax Preparation for Qualified Individuals

What is VITA?  The VITA Program (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) offers free tax preparation to  low-to-moderate-income ($58,000 and below) people who would like a trained individual to prepare their tax returns.  Certified volunteers sponsored by Northeastern State University receive training to help prepare basic tax returns for the community.  Northeastern State University (Broken Arrow Campus) is now offering this program to you if you qualify.  We prepare Federal and State returns.
