Transylvania University students are learning tax accounting skills while serving others.

The school’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program, which has been offered for more than three decades, provides free tax prep and e-filling for members of the local community who make $58,000 a year or less. The students are available today and the next two Wednesdays from 3-5:30 p.m. in the Cowgill Center for Business, Economics and Education. Schedule C preparation is not part of this program. 

Make an appointment online (required). Note that you’ll need to wear a mask; see the Healthy at Transy requirements for visitors. (Photo from February 2020.)
