Students in the Poole College of Management accounting program will offer free income tax return assistance this tax season. NC State students, faculty and residents in the community with an annual household income below $49,000 are eligible for the service.
The students are participating in the annual Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program (VITA), a program created by the Internal Revenue Service. The IRS has certified the students to prepare federal and North Carolina state income tax returns, and help individuals determine their qualification for Earned Income Tax Credits (EITC).
The services will be provided from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. in NC State’s Nelson Hall on the following dates:
The students will not be working with non-residents or individuals who do not have a valid Social Security number or Social Security card.
