Volunteer Income Tax Preparation

Every Tuesday and Friday in February, West Kentucky Community and Technical College will host two free workshops – one, to provide anyone in the community with assistance in filing income taxes and the other, to help current and prospective students complete Financial Aid applications.

WKCTC faculty and staff will present a Volunteer Income Tax Preparation (VITA) workshop to help anyone in the community file their 1040A or 1040EZ tax forms as well as a workshop to provide Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) assistance to anyone who wishes to attend college in 2014-15.

The Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA) will also have a representative on-site to discuss state options for financial aid.

The VITA and FAFSA workshops, which are free and open to the public, will be held in WKCTC’s Rosenthal Hall Room 210 every Tuesday in February from 3–6 p.m. and every Friday in February from 9:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m. Walk-ins are welcomed.

Free income tax assistance can also be found at myfreetaxes.com.

“Individuals can e-file their taxes online through this site, which provides guided help any time,” said Angel Rhodes, WKCTC Financial Aid coordinator.  “Anyone needing additional assistance can stop by during one of the sessions and we’ll be glad help.”
