UW-River Falls Student Accounting Society Offers Free Income Tax Assistance

February 6, 2014--Tax deadlines are once again approaching at a time when many households are seeking ways to lower discretionary spending. Families and individuals in the River Falls community with annual incomes lower than $25,000 will again be able to benefit from free assistance preparing tax returns provided by the Student Accounting Society in the College of Business and Economics (CBE) at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls.   

Walk-in clinics will take place at WESTconsin Credit Union in River Falls on a first-come, first-served basis from 5:30-8:30 p.m. on four Thursdays:  Feb. 20 and 27 and March 6 and 13.   

This service is not for students and does not include electronic filing.   

Since 2007, in accordance with the mission of the College of Business and Economics to serve to the university, community and the discipline, members of the Student Accounting Society have annually provided tax preparation assistance free of charge to low-income families and individuals. The students are supervised by Steve DeWald, CBE adjunct professor, who teaches a federal taxation class and is the director of the UWRF Small Business Development Center.
