IRS sponsoring MSA to help students file tax returns

From the Daily:

Even though many students spend their college years in a low tax bracket, there is some on-campus help to get their taxes in on time.

Students can go to Coffman Union every Monday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. now through April 16 to get their taxes done for free by the Minnesota Student Association.

This is the second year the Internal Revenue Service sponsored MSA to do student taxes, said Steve Wang, a 2006 University graduate who helped start the program last spring.

Interested students can drop off their forms and show an ID to MSA members to find out how large their refund check will be - or how much they have to pay back to Uncle Sam. The process takes about an hour.
