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

Jan. 18, 2012 – Tax deadlines are 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 of less than $25,000 can take advantage of free assistance preparing tax returns provided by the UWRF College of Business and Economics' Student Accounting Society. Walk-in clinics, on a first-come, first-serve basis, will take place at the WESTconsin Credit Union in River Falls from 6-9 p.m. on Feb. 21 and 28 and March 6, 19, 26 and 27.   

Since 2007, 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 annually provided tax preparation services free of charge to low-income families and individuals. The students are overseen by adjunct Professor Steve DeWald, who teaches a federal taxation class and is the director of the UWRF Small Business Development Center.
