Accounting Students Provide Free Assistance with Tax Form Preparation
An Eastern Kentucky University accounting class is partnering with the Central Kentucky Economic Empowerment Project and Kentucky River Foothills Community Action Agency to offer basic income tax preparation for those making $53,000 a year or less.
Thirty-two students in Accounting 322 (Income Tax) will provide two levels of free service: income tax preparation service and facilitated self-assist tax preparation (SFA).
Dr. Trish Isaacs, associate professor in EKU’s Department of Accounting, Finance and Information Systems, explained that the income tax preparation service is the traditional IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) service.
