Monmouth College to offer free tax preparation | News
MONMOUTH, Ill.--Beginning in February, Monmouth College will offer computerized tax preparation and e-filing for both federal and state at no cost to the taxpayer.For taxpayers earning $51,000 or less, they must come in before February 16. For people earning over $51, 000, February 18 will be the first day of tax preparation.
All ages of taxpayers are served, from students through retirees. Taxpayers who use the VITA sites are strongly encouraged to e-file, as they can expect quicker response to their filings, and the IRS can reduce its processing costs.
Tax preparation will be available on a first-come, first-served basis at two locations: the lower level of the college’s Wallace Hall and the Warren County Public Library. The library will be staffed by VITA volunteers on four Saturdays: Feb. 9, Feb. 23, March 23 and April 13, all from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
All other sessions will be conducted at the college. Weekdays sessions will be held 4 – 7 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays through April 15 (except March 11, March 13 and April 1) and two Thursdays (Feb. 7 and 14). Saturday sessions at the college will be held 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Feb. 2, Feb. 16, March 2 and April 6.
This is the 14th year Monmouth College has participated in this event.
