Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program volunteers Christopher Schmidt, Erik Kauppila, Joleen Steichen, Susan Miller and Lindsey Watson, pictured above, will be preparing tax returns every Saturday starting Jan. 27 through March 31 at the Spearfish Public Library from 10 am to 3 pm. Volunteers will also be preparing returns at Black Hills State University in Clare and Josef Meier Hall room 207 Mondays and Wednesdays from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Volunteers will also be preparing returns every Saturday at the Spearfish Public Library from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. For appointments call 642-1330.
The VITA program is a cooperative effort by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and many individual states to provide income tax assistance to individuals by training volunteers to aid others in preparing tax returns. Student preparers have received IRS training and passed an IRS prepared exam. The VITA program is designed to assist taxpayers with simple returns and to alert taxpayers to special credits and deductions for which they may be eligible.
The VITA volunteers are not able to do returns that include rentals or businesses. Taxpayers who have complicated returns should contact professional tax preparers. Participants must bring their 2005 tax return, wage and earnings statements (Form W-2), interest statements from banks (Form 1099), and other relevant information about income and expenses.
For more information, contact Liz Diers at 642-6002.
