Accounting Students Volunteer at Free Tax Clinics

By University Communications

Tax season is in full-swing and Missouri State University accounting students will help community members and other students to file their tax returns.

They will assist Community Partnership of the Ozarks, Across the Life Span and Springfield Dream Center with free tax preparation clinics between now and mid-April.

Students will help taxpayers prepare and file basic federal and state tax returns.
