KU law, business students offer free tax services

February 15, 2011


Kansas University law and business students are offering free tax services for qualifying people through April 18.

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program prepares returns for taxpayers in Kansas, Missouri and Illinois who make less than $49,000 per year and don't itemize.

Students prepared about 300 federal and state tax returns last year.

KU law student Courtney Sipe says the program gives students who are interested in tax law hands-on experience and a chance to serve the community.

The program is on a first-come, first-served basis. Interim law school dean and law professor Stephen Mazza is serving as VITA faculty coordinator.
