HAYS, KS -- Fort Hays State University's Accounting Club is once again participating in the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program.
This program is free and open to all who qualify. Volunteers are available in McCartney Hall, room 216, on the FHSU campus, on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5-9 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. through April 14. The program began Feb. 6.
Volunteers can help those with annual gross incomes under $30,000. They can help with forms 1040EZ, 1040A or 1040; schedule A-Itemized Deductions; or Schedule B-Interest and Dividends.
VITA is not qualified to do Schedule C-Business Income; Schedule D-Capital Gains; Schedule E-Rent Income and Royalties; Schedule F-Farm Income; or Foreign Student Returns.
Those needing assistance should bring W2s for all employment; forms 1099-Interest, Dividends and Miscellaneous Payments; Social Security Card(s) for the person filing and for any dependents; and last year's tax return. Both husband and wife need to be present if filing a joint return.
Students participating in the program have taken specialized training courses in tax preparation.
VITA will prepare your refund within two weeks.
