 JMU VITA Services 2022 

Who qualifies for the JMU VITA services?  

  • We can assist taxpayers with income up to $65,000.
  • We will have a Spanish translator available each week. If you need another language translator, please bring someone with you. 

How it Works:

Tax preparation services are provided on a first come, first served basis on Friday's from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. from February 4 - April 8

When the taxpayer arrives, they will be given an IRS form to complete and sign agreeing to have their return prepared by our program. 

After completing the form, they will meet with a tax return preparer to complete their tax return. The return will be reviewed with the taxpayer by a JMU tax professor. After reviewing the return with the taxpayer, the taxpayer will sign the consent to file their return and be given a copy of their return for their records before they leave. We will e-file the return with the IRS and state.

What to bring to the interview:

  • A photo ID for taxpayer and spouse + Social Security/ITIN cards (or photocopies) for taxpayers and all dependents
  • A copy of last year's tax return
  • All forms W-2 and 1099
  • Information for all deductions/credits including charitable contributions
  • Account information for direct deposit of refund (routing number and accounting number)
  • Form 1095-A if you purchased health insurance through the Marketplace
