UGA Extension Office

Tax Assistance


UGA Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) offers free tax help to people with moderate incomes, persons with disabilities, the elderly, and limited English speaking taxpayers throughout Georgia.

For more information, visit the website.


If you live outside of the Athens area in Georgia, we’ll meet with you virtually to complete your tax return. You’ll simply go to the nearest UGA Extension office offering VITA to provide the required tax documents. The county agent will then send your documents via encrypted email to student volunteers on UGA’s campus. Students will prepare your tax return in preparation for your virtual meeting to review and file your tax return.
