Idaho State University accounting fraternity offers free income tax prep for low income taxpayers

Posted February 7, 2012

Free income tax return preparation for low income taxpayers will be offered by VITA, a volunteer arm of the Internal Revenue Service, every Thursday through March 15 from 5 to 9 p.m. in Room 111 of Idaho State University's Turner Hall.

Members of Beta Alpha Psi, ISU's accounting fraternity, will provide these services on a first-come, first-served basis on Feb. 9, Feb. 16, Feb. 23, March 1, March 8 and March 15.

Taxpayers will need to bring valid identification such as state-issued drivers license or ID card and their own Social Security cards, as well as the cards of anyone else listed on the return. Documents such as W-2s, Forms 1099, and Form 1098-T will also be required as well as any other relevant documents. If taxpayers prefer to have their refund direct deposited, they will also need to bring a voided check.

No appointment is necessary. For more information contact Pete Frischmann at 282-3501 or email Beta Alpha Psi's Brett Horsburgh at horsbret@isu.edu.
