Western Wisconsin Technical College accounting and finance students will again provide volunteer tax assistance for people with basic tax returns – particularly for those with low and limited income, students, individuals with disabilities, and elderly taxpayers.

Assistance will be available on Wednesdays between Feb. 8-April 5 (except March 15), from 4:00-8:00 p.m. in Room 116 of the WWTC Business Education Center, 405 N. 8th St. in La Crosse. Tax returns will be electronically filed and the service is free. Assistance is provided on a first-come, first-served basis.

Participants must bring their W-2s, interest statements, and a copy of last year’s taxes if available. Volunteers are unable to do filing for married people who are filing separately, as well as those who were divorced in 2005.

For details, call 608.785.9168. For more information about other WWTC programs and services, call 608.785.9200 or visit the WWTC Web site at www.wwtc.edu.
