CARBONDALE, IL — Free income tax preparation services will soon be available at Southern Illinois University Carbondale, courtesy of a group of specially trained students.
Beta Alpha Psi, a College of Business and Analytics honors accounting student organization, is again sponsoring the popular free Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program in 2022 for low- and moderate-income community members.
The program begins Feb. 26 and continues each Saturday through April 2. There will be no services during spring break, March 5 and 12. Students will offer the free tax preparation services from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the computer lab on the lower level of Rehn Hall, 1025 Lincoln Drive.
The free tax preparation services are available to any U.S. citizen, whether single or married, as long as their income does not exceed $58,000, and they take the standard federal deduction.
