William Paterson University students offer help to fill out tax forms
Students from William Paterson University are offering to help residents fill out their taxes.
Business and accounting students are preparing returns for free. Anyone making less than $66,000 a year can get help filing.
No appointment is necessary. Residents can put their papers right in the campus drop box.
"The student volunteers are here. They give the intake form to our clients. The clients fill out the intake form and give copies of their financial documentation to the volunteer and our students prepare the returns. I review them. If there are any changes to be made, the volunteers make them. And then they're returned to the client," explains Valeriya Avdeev, director of VITA program.
Students can help residents file right up to the tax deadline on April 15.
