Prairie View A&M University's VITA site is open and offering professional quality service on the PVAMU campus and several other locations in Waller County and Houston. Preparers are ready to work with individuals and families and offer assistance in Spanish, Korean and English.
Prairie View A&M University has joined efforts with the Internal Revenue Service to increase earned income tax credit (EITC) awareness and education. Through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program, the College of Business at Prairie View A&M University provides free tax preparation for individuals and families, students, senior citizens, and others in Waller County between January and April.
PVAMU VITA Site Will Reopen in 2014.

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program provides free tax help to people who cannot prepare their own tax returns. Tax preparers at VITA sites have been certified and trained to help prepare basic tax returns. For more information about VITA, visit the IRS website.
