BSU students offer free tax help

BSU business and accounting students are once again offering free federal and state tax preparation and filing services, but this time, in a virtual format.

According to a release, this free help is available to people who generally make less than $57,000 a year, as well as people with disabilities, the elderly, and limited English-speaking taxpayers.

Students who have completed BSU’s Tax 1 course and passed IRS certifications will be on call from Feb. 1 through April 15 under the supervision of business and accounting instructors.
