NSU students supply free tax preparation

Service has $60K income cap

— Northeastern State University’s accounting department is offering free tax preparation on the Tahlequah campus, continuing a service made available with Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) for several years.

Five NSU accounting students are trained and certified representatives of VITA.

The service is not exclusive to NSU students. Free tax preparation is offered to anyone who grossed less than $60,000 in 2012.

The Internal Revenue Service provides tax software programs for students.

Students are certified for both basic and intermediate tax situations, which includes retirement income and itemized deductions, which are on the 1040 “long” Form. The service will focus on 2012 returns.

Taxpayers should bring all necessary forms, a valid ID and social security cards for the filer, spouse and dependents. For direct deposit, bank routing and account numbers are needed.

The tax preparation services are available until April 15. Hours are from 3-6 p.m. Monday and Thursday in Room 121 of Business and Technology.

The campus is closed for spring break from March 18-23, but it will reopen March 25.

Information: (918) 444-2968.
