Professor, students offer limited income tax preparation service

March 25, 2013

A UW-Stout professor and three of his students hope to make tax filing a little less stressful for some local taxpayers. The income tax filing deadline is Monday, April 15.

Bill Kryshak, an associate professor of business who teaches the Income Tax Accounting class, will again offer free tax preparation for low-income and elderly residents and students.

Bill Kryshak“We’re happy to help prepare these returns. For some people the process can be complex,” Kryshak said, noting U.S. tax regulations. “To be accurate you have to know the rules, and they change often.”

Local residents and students who believe they qualify for help from Kryshak should bring their tax information to room 255 of Jarvis Hall Technology Wing from 6-8 p.m. on Mondays March 25, April 1 and 8 or Wednesdays March 27, April 3 and 10.

Jarvis Hall is at 410 10th Ave. E. Parking in UW-Stout lots is free after 4 p.m.

Kryshak and the students will use computer software to prepare the returns, which usually are completed and ready for filing in about a week.

The student volunteers are Andrew Burke, of Knapp; Chris Hein, of Edgar; and Royce Libby, of Stillwater, Minn.

The tax service, part of the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program sponsored by the Internal Revenue Service, has been offered on campus for about 30 years.

For more information, email Kryshak or call 715-232-1190.
