South Central College accounting students will again volunteer with the Minnesota Valley Action Council to prepare returns for low-income taxpayers through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program.

This is the 13th year SCC and MVAC have partnered to provide the free tax preparation service. Last year officials say SCC accounting students prepared over 500 returns, which resulted in approximately $1.2 million in refunds.

The service will be available through April 11 on Wednesdays from 5:30 – 9:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 12:00 – 4:00 p.m.

Low-income individuals interested in the free tax preparation service should call MVAC to set up an appointment.
