SHERIDAN — It’s almost tax season and students and faculty in the Sheridan College business department will offer the free Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program again this year.
The program, which is a branch of the Wyoming Free Tax Service, will meet at Sheridan College’s Griffith Memorial Building, room 10. The scheduled times are Feb. 27, March 7, March 13, March 28, April 10 and April 11, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Drop-ins are welcome, however, appointments take priority. Call 674-6446 for an appointment.
The program offers assistance with relatively simple tax returns, including itemized deductions, interest, dividends, small businesses (under $10,000 of expenses), unemployment, tuition and fees, earned income credit, educational credits and much more. Generally, the income limit is $65,000 or less, but if the returns are simple, the amount can be expanded.
“This is always a great opportunity for the Sheridan College business department to help community members get a head-start on their taxes,” SC business instructor Tracy Dearinger said.
Participants are required to bring the following: all Social Security cards for taxpayer and all dependents, photo ID for taxpayer and spouse, all W-2s, 1099s, 1098-Ts, mortgage interest statements, real estate tax statements, medical expenses receipts, any charitable contributions receipts, proof of insurance if you have it, and any other document pertaining to taxes.
Clients without Social Security cards or photo IDs will be turned away.
