Fresno State students and employees can receive tax help from the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program through the Department of Accountancy in the Craig School of Business. Partnering with United Way, students who are IRS-certified volunteers help provide the free service for low-income taxpayers with an income below $55,000.

The sessions are held from 2 to 8 p.m. on Fridays, and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
