Thank you, students, for free tax service

To the editor:

I want to write a big thank you to Alexandria Technical and Community College (ATCC) for the service they offer to this community.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, ATCC accounting students volunteer their time to do our taxes for free.

I recently had my taxes done by the students enrolled in the accounting program at ATCC. I did my best to gather all the information I needed but forgot my routing information for direct deposit. No problem. I just had to return on Tuesday and have them finish my tax forms and e-file them. All of this for free!

The total time for me to get my federal, state and renter’s credit done and double checked by an instructor was less than an hour and a half. Again, all for free.

Thank you, ATCC and to the students who volunteer their time for this community service.
