San Diego State University’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program will assist middle- and low-income taxpayers ($55,000 and below) prepare and file their tax returns from Feb. 19-April 12.
Volunteers consisting of SDSU undergraduate and graduate accounting students have been certified by the Internal Revenue Service to prepare all federal and California state income tax returns.
The students who gain valuable, real-world experience by working with actual clients are trained to file completed returns both by mail and electronically.
Information about SDSU’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program, including preparation dates and times, can be found on their website. The first 30 taxpayers to arrive will have priority service, however, an appointment can be scheduled online.
The student volunteers are supervised by tax experts and accounting professors Gene Whittenburg and Steve Gill.
