CARBONDALE (WSIL) — Free income tax preparation services will soon be available for many people, thanks to a group of =Southern Illinois University Carbondale students.
Beta Alpha Psi, a College of Business and Analytics honors accounting student organization, is sponsoring the popular, free Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program in 2021 for low- and moderate-income community members.
“Being a participant in VITA allows students to gain beneficial knowledge and hands-on experience as well as offering valuable tax assistance to the community,” said Allison Bone, a master of accountancy student from Lincoln, Illinois, who is serving as the 2021 VITA program coordinator.
Free tax preparation assistance will be offered from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. each Saturday, from March 6 through April 3, in the computer lab on the lower level of Rehn Hall, 1025 Lincoln Drive.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, state and campus safety precautions will be adhered to….
