In an effort to assist lower-income families with filing their taxes, Lone Star College-Montgomery and Lone Star College-Conroe Center are providing free income tax preparation for community residents.
Beginning January 29 at LSC-Montgomery, accounting students and other volunteers trained and certified by the IRS, will help families prepare and file their 2012 federal income tax returns on Tuesdays, from 4-7 p.m., and on Saturdays, from 9 a.m.-12 p.m., in the General Academic Center (Building G).
Then, beginning February 2, LSC-Conroe Center will offer tax preparation services through a partnership with AARP Foundation on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 12-4 p.m., and Saturdays, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m., at LSC-Conroe Center in Room CC107.
Tax preparation services at both campuses will be available through April 16, with the exception of March 11-17, when the college is closed for spring holiday.
“Between the two locations, most taxpayers should be able to find a time that works for them,” said Madeline Brogan, professor of accounting at LSC-Montgomery.
The college has provided volunteer tax preparation services for several years. Students in the college’s Accounting and Business Club, which promotes the profession and provides resources to interested students, use this as an opportunity for service learning.
