SUNY Canton students offer free tax help for qualifying individuals and families
CANTON -- SUNY Canton accounting students are volunteering to help qualifying individuals and families file their taxes for free.
Several students are offering free tax preparation assistance as part of their accounting coursework on Mondays and Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to noon and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. until April 4 in Cook Hall Room 116.Appointments are strongly encouraged.
Students from the college work with the volunteer income tax assistance program to increase their own tax preparation skills and to teach community members how to correctly file their own personal taxes in the future.
The Internal Revenue Service sponsors the VITA program.
Although this service is free and open to the public, the qualifying income bracket for participants is a gross income below $49,000, according to the IRS.
