Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program
Since 1981, students have participated in the annual Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program that is co-sponsored by the Accounting Society and the Internal Revenue Service. Volunteers must complete training on federal and NYS tax return preparation in order to help the elderly and low-income residents of Dunkirk and Fredonia file their federal and state income tax returns during "tax season."
Meet the Accountants Night
Every fall semester, the Accounting program at Fredonia State holds its Meet the Accountants Night. This formal event is designed to provide employers with the opportunity to "network" with juniors and seniors in the accounting program and to promote career opportunities in their organizations. Students learn about internship and career opportunities with firms from the Western New York area.
