Accounting Students Reaching Out with Tax Prep Assistance
UWGB Accounting students have been reaching out to lend a helping hand to the community through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program. Through VITA, a program sponsored by the IRS, UWGB students have been helping lower income taxpayers and fellow students prepare their income tax returns. The students are helping with taxes at one of several locations in the Green Bay area. They are getting hands-on experience in dealing with clients and applying principles learned in the classroom to real life situations. In addition, students are gaining a great sense of satisfaction from having provided a valuable service to the community and the taxpayers they have assisted. Contact faculty member, Jim Loebl, for more information.
