This tax season, LIU Brooklyn will again help low-income residents prepare their tax returns at the Brooklyn campus in Downtown Brooklyn.

Offered through its Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA) and sponsored by the LIU Brooklyn Student Accounting Society, the program will help residents with an annual income below $50,000 — with support of faculty members in the university’s Department of Accounting, Taxation and Law.

Volunteers are trained by the Internal Revenue Service.

Taxpayers should bring valid photo identification and social security cards for themselves and their dependents; records of income, including W-2s and 1099s; and, if possible, a copy of last year’s tax returns.

VITA sessions will be held on Fridays and Saturdays, March 3 through April 14. The hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Fridays and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays, in the Pratt Building 1st Floor, at LIU Brooklyn, 1 University Plaza, corner of Flatbush and DeKalb avenues.
