XU students giving tax assistance to low income, elderly taxpayers

We just received the following press release from Xavier’s Public Relations Office announcing free basic Federal and State income tax assistance to low income and elderly taxpayers in Norwood, Evanston, and Avondale. Be sure to pass this information along to anyone you know who could benefit from this free service:


Xavier University accounting students will help prepare tax returns for low income and elderly taxpayers, as well as students, on Monday evenings, 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. from February 25 through April 14.

The students are offering free basic Federal and State income tax assistance to the Xavier, Norwood, Evanston, and Avondale communities through the IRS sponsored Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA).

Getting help is easy. First, call 513 745-3236, to schedule an appointment. Then, bring a photo ID, your Social Security card, any tax-related forms and a copy of last year’s tax return (if possible) to the appointment. The students will set up on the second floor of the Admission Building (also known as Schott Hall) on Dana Ave. Parking is available in the Admission lot after 5:00 p.m.

Xavier alumni have also volunteered their time to assist in the review process.
