News Release


Free Tax Preparation Being Offered by Mount Marty College

Published Date2\7\2012
For the 18th year, Mount Marty College students will assist Yankton area residents with preparing their individual tax returns without charge. Students enrolled in the tax clinic course will help prepare required federal and state tax returns for low-income clients. The students will meet with each client for an initial interview and then prepare the necessary tax returns. A second, short appointment will then be conducted to go over the results of the tax returns before filing.

Each tax return will go through a verification process to ensure accuracy before being returned to the client for filing. At the conclusion of the tax return preparation process, the client will be given a paper return to mail to the Internal Revenue Service along with a full and complete copy for their personal records. No data relative to any tax returns will be maintained by Mount Marty College or the students providing the service.

Those interested in taking advantage of this free service should email taxprep@mtmc.edu or call Mount Marty College at (605) 668-1011 to schedule an appointment. Appointments will be scheduled on Mondays from 4:00 to 7:00 pm, Tuesdays from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm, and Thursdays from 3:00 to 6:00 pm. Appointments will be taken from now through April 9th.
