Students to provide free income tax preparation

Students of the Upper Iowa University School of Business Accounting Department will provide free income tax preparation on the Fayette campus on Tuesdays Feb. 9 – April 5. The program will be provided from 3 – 6 p.m. each day on the second floor of the UIU Andres Center for Business and Education. Note: Due to Spring Break, the service will not be available March 8.

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program is sponsored by the IRS. Individuals or families who made $54,000 or less during 2015 are eligible to participate. Both state and federal income taxes will be prepared and filed electronically. In addition to previously completing federal taxation coursework at UIU, each of the students preparing the tax returns has completed training for IRS certification.

The Upper Iowa VITA site coordinators are Chris Fuller, UIU assistant professor of accounting, and April Wilker, UIU accounting student. The tax preparation program is available by appointment only.
