Tackling taxing issues

If filling out an IRS return is just a little too taxing for you, Mizzou’s MoTax program offers an option. Trained volunteers, who are primarily personal financial planning students, will do your taxes for free from April 5 to 17. This IRS-sanctioned program offers the service at three sites in Columbia and at other locations around the state.

On the MU campus, income tax assistance is offered from 4:30 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturdays in 61 Stanley Hall. Other locations include: the Central Missouri Community Action Center, 800 N. Providence Road, from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Monday and Wednesday; and JobPoint, 2116 Nelwood Drive, from 4:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesdays.  

The service is sponsored by MU’s Department of Personal Financial Planning and is provided for students and families with incomes less than $50,000. Advanced reservations cannot be made, and the service is provided on a first-come, first-served basis until the site reaches maximum capacity.
