Xavier accounting students help with tax returns

Area residents and students may be eligible for Earned Income Credit

Xavier University accounting students will help prepare tax returns for low income, elderly and student taxpayers on Monday evenings from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. beginning February 23. 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). The program is also sponsored by the Make Work Pay coalition. Xavier alumni will also volunteer to assist in the review process.

Getting help is easy. First, call 513 745-2828 to schedule an appointment. Then, bring the following items to the appointment:
  1. a photo ID
  2. your W2 (your last pay stub is not enough)
  3. your Social Security card
  4. any tax-related documents
  5. a copy of last year’s tax return (if possible)

The students will be set up in the Schiff Conference Center in Xavier’s Cintas Center. Free parking is available in the Cintas Center lot.

Assistance is available from 5:30-8:00 p.m. on the following Mondays by appointment only:
