UM Law Tax Clinic: Second- and third-year Ole Miss law students will provide full-service tax preparation for basic federal and state returns. Beginning Feb. 4 and running through April 8, students participating in the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance clinic will be available 3:30-6 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Oxford-Lafayette County Library, 401 Bramlett Blvd. Assistance is free to persons whose combined annual household income is less than $52,000.
UM Tax Aid Clinic: The AARP is sponsoring a clinic to provide free assistance to people of any age who need help with basic federal and state returns. Students enrolled in UM Master of Accountancy program receive rigorous training from the IRS, and will be available to help 1-5 p.m. Thursdays. The clinic opens Feb. 6 and runs through April 10 at the Stone Center, 423 Washington Ave. in Oxford.
What to Bring: Both clinics will provide assistance on a first-come, first-served basis. Clients will need to bring proof of income statements (W2s, 1099s and similar forms), Social Security cards for all dependents being claimed, as well as any documents related to a major life change that occurred in 2013. Such changes may include marriage, divorce, death of a spouse or child, birth or adoption of a child, the purchase or sale of a home and similar events. Past years’ returns are also welcome but not required.
