Statement of Purpose
The VITA chapter of the UNC-Chapel Hill School of Law seeks to provide free income tax assistance to low and middle-income taxpayers in Chapel Hill and Carrboro, North Carolina.
Our membership is open to all faculty and students who wish to participate. To prepare tax returns, members are required to pass the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) certification tests. Students may sign up for volunteering on My Carolina Law.
If you cannot sign up for a clinic this is likely due to the clinic being full. If there are no options listed on that particular date it is because we do not have volunteers for that date. Please do not call the law school or email asking why you cannot sign up for a clinic as we will not respond. Please continue to check the calendar for availability.
If you are interested in becoming a client, please visit the For Taxpayers and the FAQs sections.
