What is VITA?

Certified volunteers sponsored by Northeastern State University receive training to help prepare basic tax returns for the community. Northeastern State University (Broken Arrow campus) and Community Action Resources and Development is now offering this program to you if you qualify. VITA prepares both Federal and State returns. The service is open to qualifying members of  surrounding area communities, the campus community including their family members and friends.
