ETTRICK, Va. (WWBT) – Accounting students at Virginia State University are offering free tax filing assistance to residents of the Tri-Cities area.

The students have partnered with the US Internal Revenue Service to help local residents.

As part of a Federal Income Tax course, students will provide Tri-Cities residents with assistance in preparing and filing income tax returns.

The service is for 2021 single or joint filers with an annual income of less than $58,000.

VSU students have provided service for the past 35 years.

“Our College of Business is a source of pride for Virginia State University,” said Dr. Donald E. Palm, Provost and Senior Vice President. “This initiative is an example of experiential learning at VSU and is also representative of our students’ civic engagement and impactful community service.”

There will be no in-person tax preparation due to COVID protocols. Tax information and a valid ID must be dropped off at 216 Singleton Hall on the VSU campus. A volunteer tax assistance worker will call you to review the return. Once the return has been retrieved and approved, it will be filed electronically.

The site is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and Wednesdays from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. from February 17 to April 7. The service is not available when the university is closed.
