Lee’s Tax Prep Service Delayed One Week

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Due to recent changes in tax laws, the free tax preparation service offered by Lee University will not begin until Feb. 1.

While the IRS worked to anticipate the change, the law required that the IRS update forms and instructions as well as make critical processing system adjustments before it can begin accepting tax returns.  

Beginning Feb. 1, the Lee University Department of Business will partner with the Internal Revenue Service's Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program to offer free tax preparation every Friday and Saturday in the Walker Memorial Building.

IRS certified junior and senior accounting students will provide assistance at the Walker Memorial Building in Room 108 from 2:30-5:30 p.m. on Fridays and 9 a.m.-12 p.m. on Saturdays. The last day of filing tax returns through VITA at Lee is Saturday, April 13.

In its sixth year, the VITA program at Lee is a tax return preparation service for any taxpayer whose maximum gross annual income does not exceed $50,000. 

For additional information, contact Greg Della Franco at 614-8667 or e-mail him at gdellafranco@leeuniversity.edu.

I’ve snorkeled in the Great Exuma islands, learned to snow ski in the Austrian Alps, and ... (click for more)
