FREE Tax Help From MSU Accounting Students
If you haven’t completed your taxes yet, made less than $58,000 and need some assistance…there’s FREE HELP available on the Montana State campus from MSU accounting students. Times and location HERE:
The help sessions will be held on the MSU campus in Reid Hall 302. No appointment is necessary.
Sessions will be held from 5:30-7 p.m. on the following dates: March 6, 20, 27, 29; and April 3. At the sessions, students will be available to prepare federal and state income tax returns and answer tax questions. Free electronic filing will be available for most 1040 forms.
Bring your 2011 W-2 forms, other tax documents, social security cards and copies of your 2010 tax returns (if available). International students and employees should also bring their passports and visas.
The student accounting volunteers are part of the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, which was established by the Internal Revenue Service to assist people who may find it difficult to pay for tax preparation services. The program also gives accounting students practical experience.
Each student accounting volunteer has passed an IRS tax preparation exam, completed at least one comprehensive tax course, received specific training related to common tax issues, and has access to a variety of federal and state reference materials.
