Approximately 50 students from the Central Connecticut
State University (CCSU) Accounting Department participat-
ed in training this fall to assist local taxpayers in the prepa-
ration of their income tax returns through the IRS Volunteer
Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program.
The two-day workshop, culminating in IRS certification,
allows the students to assist qualified taxpayers at two sites
this tax season: one at CCSU's Community Central location
in downtown New Britain and one on the CCSU campus
solely for its students.
