LMU School of Business Offering Free Basic Tax Preparation
The Lincoln Memorial University (LMU) School of Business is once again offering free basic tax preparation services through the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program.
School of Business students will be preparing taxes under the supervision and guidance of Dr. Roger Holt, assistant professor of management, Mondays and Wednesdays from 2:30 to 6:30 p.m., through the IRS tax deadline on Wednesday, April 15, 2020. Holt and his students have been trained on the IRS tax software and are certified to e-file returns. The services will not be available over LMU’s spring break on March 23 or 25.
The services are available for very basic returns, including state and federal income tax reporting. VITA has set up a temporary office in room 117 of the Business and Education Building on LMU’s main campus in Harrogate, Tennessee. Services are available on a first-come, first-served basis for individuals or families with income below $54,000 (no farming, no self-employment and no business). No appointments are necessary. Filers should bring proof of identification, tax documents including wage and earning statements from all employers (W-2 and 1099 forms), social security cards for household, interest statements, health insurance statements and a copy of last year’s federal and state returns, if available.
