The University of Tennessee at Martin student chapter of the Institute of Management Accountants will partner with the United Way of West Tennessee and First State Bank of Sharon to sponsor a free federal income tax preparation/filing assistance session.
The event will be held from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday in the first-floor computer lab, Room 124, in the Business Administration Building.
Several UT Martin accounting majors who have passed an IRS tax preparation certification program and bank employees will perform the free tax preparation and filing service. The Department of Computer Science and Information Systems in the College of Business and Public Affairs will provide the facilities and technical support.
Among the local students scheduled to participate in the service-learning campus/community project are Nathan Woods and Emily Hathaway, both of Union City, and Joseph Talley of Trenton.
The service is not intended for lengthy or complex tax returns. The primary clients targeted are students who need to file to get excess withholdings refunded and students and other people who qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit.
No appointment is necessary. The service is provided on a first-come, first served basis.
For more information, contact Dr. Ken VanVuren, UT Martin assistant professor of accounting, at (731) 881-7397.
