MSUM students help prepare income tax returns

Posted on April 21, 2017

MSUM students gave back to their communities in a big way this semester, by serving as volunteers in the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program. Nineteen MSUM students volunteered a combined total of 415 hours during the tax filing season that ended April 18. They helped low-to-moderate income families who needed assistance preparing their 2016 tax returns by serving at local VITA sites (the Lakes & Prairies Community Action Partnership in Moorhead, and the Southeastern North Dakota Community Action Agency in Fargo). 

As committed VITA volunteers, our students first received training and passed certification tests, then began providing free tax help. What a great way to serve their communities, while at the same time getting relevant, real-world experience on their resumes.  Read the rest of this entry →
