Moravian College is once again proud to take part in the annual Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program sponsored by the Internal Revenue Service. Fifteen students and three accounting professors help local residents prepare their federal, state, and local income tax returns. Students not only learn about taxes through hands on return preparation, but also gain invaluable lessons about interacting with the Bethlehem PA community. What’s more, studies have shown VITA tax returns have one of the highest accuracy rates in the industry. VITA is available to taxpayers with income of less than $56,000.
