ACCT 261 - Tax Practice (VITA) [SERV-2]

3 hours

A practical introduction to individual income tax preparation, offered in conjunction with the IRS’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. Once training is completed, students must pass the IRS’s written examination to become VITA certified and complete the required staffing hours during tax filing season. Emphasis is on the application of current tax law, communication skills, and community service. This course will meet 50 hours of the 100 required hours of internship and, if taken twice, will fully meet the internship requirement.
This course is cross-listed with ACCT 461 . A student may receive credit for this course from only one program.
