Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) has completed its ninth year of service in the Dalton community. The program is carried out in partnership with the Georgia United Credit Union. Students from the accounting program certify with the Internal Revenue Service and prepare taxes for individuals and families. WSOB students from the professional development course volunteer time as receptionists for the program. In 2021, students completed and filed over 382 returns from late January through mid-March. These returns produced $677,565 in federal refunds and $102,026 in state refunds. The College provided 36 volunteers who volunteered 849.5 hours of their time.
