Xavier students offering free income tax assistance

Again this year, Xavier University accounting students will help prepare tax returns for low income, elderly and student taxpayers on Monday evenings Feb 20, Feb 27, March 12, March 19, April 2 and April 9.

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 745-2828 or email to schedule an appointment. It is first come first served at those time slots. The following items must be brought to the appointment:

· a photo ID
· your W2s, 1099s (your last pay stub is not enough)
· Social Security Cards (you, your spouse, and your dependents)
· any tax-related documents
· a copy of last year’s tax return (if possible)

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

This is the 18th year that Xavier students have offered this service. For additional information, contact Dr. Priscilla O’Clock, Accountancy Department, 745-4245 (office).
