TCC OFFERS TAX-PREP FOR QUALIFIED TAXPAYERS
IRS-certified volunteers to give free assistance for specific income levels
HAMPTON ROADS, Va. – (Jan. 16, 2009) – As part of the IRS-sponsored Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program (VITA), Tidewater Community College will offer in February and March free tax-preparation assistance for individuals in low-to-moderate income levels.
TCC accounting faculty members administer the tax-preparation help as a region-wide community service through VITA. As volunteers trained and certified by the Internal Revenue Service to handle simple tax returns, TCC students from the Accounting Club and the class, Federal Taxation I, provide the services with faculty supervision. All TCC-assisted tax returns will be electronically filed from the on-campus locations.
People seeking tax help should bring a valid picture ID, Social Security card, 2007 tax return and 2008 tax documents.
