Beginning in the 2021 tax season, East Early College High School and Beyond Careers Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) have formed a partnership to establish a VITA Club at the school.  VITA is under the Internal Revenue Service-Stakeholder Partnerships, Education and Communication department.  Students will take training to become IRS-Certified volunteers.  They will gain tax skills and community service hours while being on a team to help taxpayers receive free tax preparation services.


Students will be able to add this milestone of their resume, job, school, scholarship and grant applications.  Their instructor will also be able to provide extra credit on their grade.
