Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program

While enrolled in the MS in Accounting program, students are able to strengthen their leadership and networking skills as well as apply their professional accounting knowledge through initiatives that impact the community both on and off campus. Whether your interests are joining a professional student organization, serving the community through projects such as VITA, or participating in experiential accounting-related projects with local businesses or non-profits, UT Dallas strives to create a transformative experience for you!

Community Service

A great program that UT Dallas students have been involved in for the last six years is the Internal Revenue Service’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program, which provides assistance in tax return preparation and education for low to moderate income families.

In each of the past two years, over 150 students have volunteered and provided almost 13,000 total hours of volunteer work which generated over $20 million in tax refunds.

This program not only provides a great service to the community but is also a practical way for students to apply their accounting knowledge while developing leadership and communication skills.
