UGA VITA aims to fulfill the three missions of UGA by creating unique experiential learning opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students, improving family economic wellbeing and stability in the Athens community and across Georgia by providing free tax preparation assistance and focused financial literacy interventions, and creating opportunities to engage in valuable applied research.
We offer free tax help to people with moderate incomes, persons with disabilities, the elderly, and limited English speaking taxpayers throughout Georgia.
We are looking for future financial planners, accountants, and business people who want to sharpen their tax knowledge, develop their client communication skills, and make a difference in the community.

I can make a difference
VITA showed me that I can use my knowledge and skillset to impact people, and this experience demonstrated a practical way that I can give back to the community and make a difference for all types of people.
I feel more confident than ever
I’m grateful for the client-facing experiences I had, the impact I was able to make on people in my community, and, as a whole, I feel more confident than ever that what I’m studying is the right field for me.
We'd love to hear from you!
