Student Accounting Society Offers Free Income Tax Assistance

Jan. 29, 2013 – 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 be able to benefit from free assistance preparing tax returns provided by the UW-River Falls College of Business and Economics Student Accounting Society.   

The walk-in clinics will take place at WESTconsin Credit Union in River Falls on a first-come, first-served basis from 6 to 9 p.m. on Feb. 19 and 26 and March 7 and 14. Please note that electronic filing is not offered at these clinics and the clinics are not for students.   

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