Poole College Offers Free Tax Sessions

The NC State University Poole College of Management is hosting free income tax preparation assistance sessions for the 2017 income tax return season. The service is offered through the IRS-certified Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. Poole College student volunteers in the college’s bachelor of accounting degree program completed training session and will be providing assistance on four Saturdays during this tax season, with faculty supervision provided by Ernest Carraway, a lecturer in the college’s Department of Accounting.

The VITA team will be helping individuals to complete their income tax returns using the MyFreeTaxes online system. This VITA site will not be able to prepare 1040NR returns and there is an income limit of $64,000 for free filing.
