The University of Nebraska at Kearney Accounting Society is alleviating some of the stress tax season causes by helping individuals file their income tax forms through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, which is sponsored by the IRS.
Volunteers are available 7:30 – 8:45 p.m. Mondays at the Kearney Public Library, now through April 18. There is no charge for the service.
According to Dr. Donald Morgan, Accounting Society adviser and UNK professor of accounting and finance, the VITA volunteers help 50 to 60 individuals every spring. Each accounting student volunteer was required to complete and pass an open book test on the three basic tax forms: 1040EZ, 1040A and 1040.
UNK’s Accounting Society is open to students who have declared a major in accounting and have completed Principles of Accounting I and II.
