MILLIGAN COLLEGE, TN (WJHL) - For the sixth year, Milligan College is offering free, IRS-certified return preparations through VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) – beginning February 3.
This year, there is a new online registration option and a sponsor, Appalachian Community Federal Union (ACFCU).
In 2013, volunteers completed more than 500 returns – saving clients more than $125,000 and producing more than $600,000 in refunds.
For more information on registering for a session, check out vita.milligan.edu. The program will be led by Milligan professor Dr. Harold Branstrator, a former IRS employee. Returns are prepared by students who have completed VITA’s three-week certification process.
“We see this as a ministry to low and moderate-income taxpayers,” Branstrator said. “Our volunteers (mostly Milligan students) are competent, courteous and respectful and we have a near-zero error rate, much lower than the average for paid preparers.
Only those eligible for the program can take advantage of these services:
