The large, foreign national student community at the University of Houston has benefited from the Voluntary Income Tax Assistance program’s assistance in preparing their U.S. tax returns (Forms 1040NR or 1040NR-EZ) in accordance with complex tax laws.
UH was approved as a VITA site in 1998 for UH foreign nationals. The VITA program is offered by the Houston chapter of CPAs in cooperation with the Internal Revenue Service. The VITA program consists of volunteers from the Houston Chapter of CPAs who review tax returns for those individuals who need help in the local community. International Student Services will provide the publicity for this campus event.
Help sessions have been scheduled at UH this spring:
Location: Second floor of the Student Center
Dates: March 12, 19, and 26 in Bayou City Room 219; April 2 in Astrodome Room 257, and April 9 in S. Multipurpose Room 237 East
Times: 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
This program will not only provide an invaluable service to the foreign national community at the University of Houston, but also an enriching and educational experience for those students volunteering to help in preparing tax returns for UH foreign nationals.
