Students with Indiana University Maurer School of Law and the Kelley School of Business will assist local taxpayers with free tax preparation help during February and March.
The students are participating in the Internal Revenue Service’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program, which runs from Feb. 9-March 26. Recipients of the service must have an annual income of less than $54,000.
“Last year VITA served more than 600 taxpayers on campus and in the Bloomington community,” said Jeremy Munza, a second-year law student and VITA student coordinator. “This year, with the help of our exemplary team of Kelley and Maurer volunteers, we are confident this will be our best and busiest year yet.”
Munza said more than 80 students are volunteering this year; each has committed to at least 10 hours of volunteer time.
