BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Accounting students are helping western New Yorkers with a task not many people enjoy; preparing their income tax returns.
The students are taking accounting at the University at Buffalo, where they provided that help on Sunday. They are certified by the Internal Revenue Service.
They help fill out federal and state forms for individuals and families. The service is free for filers whose annual income is under $53,000.
“You just have to come down with your original Social Security, you need a license, and then all your tax documents, so you have to bring everything you have so if you have a W-2 from working or if you have interest or dividend income just bring that all down and we’ll file your return,” said Andrew Robertson, who is with the business fraternity at UB.
The service is available on a first-come, first served basis from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the following days:
February 14, 15, 21, 22 and 28, and March 1 on South Campus, at 100 Allen Hall.
March 7 and 8 at the Downtown Campus, 77 Goodell Street.
March 28 and 29, and April 4, 5, 11 and 12 on North Campus, 106 Jacobs Management Center, Amherst.
