Free Tax Preparation Offered by Mount Marty College Accounting Students

Thursday, February 4th 2016 - All Day

From February 1 through April 1, local community members with low-incomes can receive free tax preparation by Mount Marty College accounting students. This year marks the 22nd year that Mount Marty students have been providing free individual tax preparation, overseen by qualified faculty, for federal returns.

Qualifying community members will meet with MMC students for an initial interview before their tax return preparation begins. A second, short appointment will be conducted with each client to review the results of the tax returns before filing. If more advanced tax services are deemed necessary, clients will be asked to seek assistance from a professional tax preparer.

Each tax return will go through a verification process to ensure accuracy before being returned to the client for filing. At the conclusion of the tax return preparation process, the client will be given a paper return to mail to the Internal Revenue Service along with a full and complete copy for their personal records. No data relative to any tax returns will be maintained by Mount Marty College or the students providing this service.

Those interested in taking advantage of this free service should e-mail to schedule an appointment. Appointments will be scheduled on Mondays from 9 to 11 a.m., Tuesdays from 5 to 8 p.m. and Thursdays from 5 to 8 p.m. Appointments will be held on Mount Marty’s Yankton campus.
