Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA)
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.
The Family Impact Center site is now open for tax paperwork drop-off 9 AM-Noon on Wednesdays, January 27 - April 14, closed March 31 for Spring Break. At drop-off, clients will schedule a time the following week to pick up their completed tax return.
