Penn College Students Provide Volunteer Income Tax Assistance

— WILLIAMSPORT — Pennsylvania College of Technology students again are volunteering their time to help qualified individuals as they prepare their 2013 income tax returns.

More than a dozen students, most of them majoring in accounting but also representing the college’s financial planning, legal assistant, business management and information technology majors, have undergone months of extensive training to become certified tax preparers by the Internal Revenue Service.

The free service, part of the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program sponsored by the IRS, is designed for taxpayers who have relatively uncomplicated returns and less than $51,000 in annual income.

The services are provided Monday through Saturday on an appointment-only basis in the Teachers Learning Center in the college’s Madigan Library (Room 213). A “Super Saturday” session is planned for walk-ins (no appointment required) on March 29 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Limited appointments are available and can be scheduled by calling (570) 321-5544; taxpayers should bring proper identification, required forms (W-2s, 1099s, etc.), Social Security cards, banking information and receipts to document any deductions.
