Western 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 Mondays between Feb. 5-April 9 (except March 12), from 4:00-7:30 p.m. in Room 111 of Western’s 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, 1099s, 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 2006.
