Tax assistance through VITA at Coastal Carolina University

February 10, 2009

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA), an IRS program, will provide free tax help to the community through March 25 at Coastal Carolina University.

The University's accounting students will help with e-filing, basic tax returns with earnings of $42,000 or less, international student returns and multiple state returns.

People will need to bring: W2s, 1098Ts, 1099s, copy of last year's tax return (if available), Social Security card (if available), and any other information you have received regarding income tax. If there is a direct deposit of refund, bring proof of account, such as a voided check.
