Students Make Taxes Easy

Accounting students will be putting their practical skills to work.

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program will soon be under way at Truman.

Accounting students will offer free tax preparation to students who need it and those with low to moderate incomes.

There will be four different sessions of the VITA program. They are scheduled from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. in Violette Hall Feb. 17, Feb. 24, March 17 and March 24. Signs will direct clients to the location.

Both the taxpayer and the taxpayer’s spouse must attend as returns will be e-filed generating a quicker refund.

Taxpayers should also be sure to bring proof of identity; copies of all W-2, 1098, 1099 forms and any other tax forms received in the mail; social security cards for all individuals listed on the tax return; and banking information if a direct deposit is desired.

All participating accounting students have received special training and at least one accounting faculty member will be present to review tax returns and answer any questions.

Clients will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. The program does reserve the right reject complex returns.
