Whitman School’s Accounting Students Offer Free Income Tax Assistance April 3

Accounting students at the Martin J. Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University will offer free income tax assistance to all Syracuse University students, faculty and staff on Friday, April 3, between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. in Flaum Grand Hall, located in the main lobby of the Whitman building.

This service, hosted by the Beta Alpha Psi Free Tax Assistance group, will answer questions that cover non-complicated individual Federal and New York State tax returns that can generally be filed on IRS short forms (1040 EZ or 1040A). Taxpayers can then file their returns on their own using free E-filing services offered through various organizations. Individuals who have income from employment (reported on Form W-2), as well as interest and dividends, are welcome to seek assistance.

The service will be offered on a first come, first serve basis and is directed toward tax payers that may need a little extra help figuring out their taxes.

“Tax season is a difficult time for everyone,” said Mitch Franklin, assistant professor of accounting in the Whitman School. “This program allows students to put into action all the information they are learning in their classes in order to help out their fellow colleagues.”
