College students to provide free tax assistance - Tri-State News, Weather & Sports

Free tax prep offered for Tri Staters

Student volunteers with the University of Southern Indiana will soon provide free income tax preparation. Nine USI students will be available on Wednesdays, starting February 6.

"We have nine students enrolled in the program, and this will allow us to help approximately 16 taxpayers per night this tax season," said Brett Long, associate professor of accounting and business law. "Preparing tax returns for members of our community is a great experience for our accounting students and a real savings for taxpayers."

The Internal Revenue Service partners with local organizations to provide the tax services. It's for individuals with a low-to-moderate income.

The sessions will be held by appointment only in Room 1004 in the USI Business and Engineering Center, at 5 p.m. and 6:45 p.m. on the following Wednesdays: February 6, 13, 20, and 27; March 6, 20, and 27; and April 3 and 10. 

To make an appointment, and learn what documents are required, call the USI College of Business at 812-464-1718.
