New Yorkers who need assistance filing their returns this tax season are getting a helping hand from MMC’s Business students. The College is participating in the IRS’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, which provides free tax preparation services to low-income filers, people with disabilities, and limited English speakers. Under a partnership with the Food Bank for New York City, MMC students are serving as VITA tax preparers at the organization’s Tax and Finance Center in Manhattan and for its remote tax prep service through April 15. Each student has passed IRS certification exams and undergone hours of training. Since 2011, more than 40 MMC Business students have volunteered for the program, collectively preparing over 500 income tax returns. The College’s participation this year was organized by Associate Professor of Accounting and Assistant Business Division Chair Andrea Tsentides, MBA, CPA, who enlisted three of her students for the effort: Christina Newland ’25, Alana Gallante ’24, and Peter Nierenhausen ’24 (pictured above).
