Count on L.I.U. Students at Tax Time

Veronica Beltran (r) helps at tax time.
Tax filers can count on LIU aid,” the New York Daily News proclaimed in a March 5 article about senior Veronica Beltran (business) and work by students she organizes from the Brooklyn Campus Accounting Society, a student-run organization.

Through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program (VITA), sponsored by the Internal Revenue Service, Accounting Society members provide free income tax return preparation services for people with low incomes. The students receive training from the IRS to help those whose income levels allow them to qualify for the service.

“Last year more than 1,000 people made use of this volunteer service. I couldn’t be prouder about being a part of VITA,” says aspiring accountant Beltran, a HEOP student.
