The VITA program provides free tax assistance to individual taxpayers and families.
University of Missouri students in the department of Personal Financial Planning are trained and IRS-certified to provide this free service to individuals in the Columbia community, primarily for people with low to moderate incomes, those with disabilities, the elderly and English-as-a-second-language taxpayers.
Starting Jan. 30, 2023, VITA services will be provided at the Family Impact Center on Mondays on a walk-in basis from 8:45 a.m.-11:45 a.m. and 1:15 p.m.-4:15 p.m. (no services on March 27 due to Spring Break).
