The VITA program originated at the Wolfson Campus and was later extended to other campuses. Students are trained to prepare free individual income tax returns for fellow students, their families and the general public. They are supervised by professors and experienced coordinators from MDC’s Miguel B. Fernandez School of Global Business, Trade and Transportation, who review the returns before filing them electronically with the IRS.
