Since 1982, USU Eastern (CEU) has prepared income taxes for low-income families, seniors and students, and the best part is that it’s free. The USU Eastern Center prepares between 400 to 500 returns each year. USU Eastern was the first educational institution in Utah that started doing taxes for the students and community through Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA). It isn’t only students who help with the preparations; community members, staff and former students help as well. Former employee, Hank Savage, for instance, comes every year to help students understand procedures and to also prepare tax return.
