*UPDATE* 3/16/2020
Due to university policy on the COVID-19 situation, USC VITA is CLOSED for the remainder of this year's tax season. Please scroll down to see the message below for options on how to file your taxes elsewhere.

ATTENTION: 
USC VITA OPERATIONS UPDATE


As of March 16th, the University of Southern California (USC) has
suspended all university-sponsored events and activities for the 2020 spring semester
, due to concerns about public health with coronavirus
(COVID-19). Unfortunately, as a student-run organization sponsored by
USC, this order includes USC VITA and thus we will be closing our
doors until further notice
. During this time, we can view, revise, and
file existing returns but we are not able to accept any new clients
or prepare new returns
.

If you need your taxes prepared, we would
suggest the following free resources depending on your residency status:
U.S. Citizens/Residents: www.myfreetaxes.com
Foreign Students: Sprintax Please note that the IRS has extended the tax deadline to July 15th, 2020.

We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause you and your
family and we thank you for your understanding.

If you have any questions or concerns, or are an existing client
who we prepared a return for, please email us at
uscvita@gmail.com (preferred, fastest response) or leave a
voicemail at (323) 380 – 8955.
