UNH students offer help on tax returns on Friday

DURHAM - University of New Hampshire volunteers will assist low-income residents with tax preparation during a day-long session on Friday, Feb. 15.

The volunteers are all accounting majors in the Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics and are certified tax preparers with the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, a collaboration of UNH, the Internal Revenue Service, Northeast Credit Union and the Creating Assets, Savings and Hope Coalition of Southeastern New Hampshire.

In addition to providing assistance with basic tax returns, volunteers can also show taxpayers how to prepare the returns themselves under a new IRS program called MyFreeTaxes.

Those with total household income below $57,000 qualify for VITA assistance and the MyFreeTaxes program.

This is the ninth year UNH students have volunteered for the VITA program.

Volunteers will be available from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Room 207 of the Memorial Union Building on the Durham campus.
