The College of Business Administration at Cal Poly Pomona will continue its longstanding tradition of providing complimentary income tax preparation to Pomona-area residents. Students volunteers will offer their assistance from Feb. 8 to April 13 at three locations: Boys & Girls Club of Pomona Valley, YMCA of Pomona Valley and Pomona Public Library.
The service is available to those who 2012 gross yearly income was $51,000 or less and appointments are not needed. Also, many of the student volunteers speak other languages such as Spanish to better assist non-English speakers.
Student volunteers must pass the rigorous Internal Revenue Service examinations to participate. Accounting Professor Bill Foley who has more than 30 years of experience working as a certified public accountant will oversee the students with the assistance of enrolled agents, professional tax preparers who have credentials with the IRS.
In order to get the most out of the free service, clients should arrive at least an hour before closing and bring all necessary documents including identification cards, W-2 forms and social security cards for all household members. For more information on the type of documents to bring, visit https://cba.csupomona.edu/acc/vita_req.aspx.
