(Monmouth, IL) For the eleventh consecutive year Monmouth College is offering computerized tax preparation and e-filing at no cost to the taxpayer. This service is provided in cooperation with the Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program under its Stakeholder Partnership, Education and Communication (SPEC) Division.

Professor Judy Peterson, coordinator of the college program, stated that it has a two-fold purpose: Service and education for the community, and citizenship and education for the students. The service is aimed at low to middle-income taxpayers (generally $50,000 or less) who cannot afford professional assistance and need assistance in the preparation of their return. All ages of taxpayers are served, from students through retirees. Everyone who comes to the VITA sites is strongly encouraged to e-file. Taxpayers can expect quicker response to their filings, and the IRS can reduce its processing costs.

Professor Peterson asks that taxpayers who have higher incomes but have tax returns within the scope of the VITA program please wait until after our first two busy weeks in February to come to the sites, as the program is aimed at those with lower incomes. “Nevertheless, we welcome higher incomes as the learning process for the students in this program continues throughout the tax season. We also ask that taxpayers that have unusual or complicated returns go to a paid tax preparer of your choice.”

Tax preparation is on a first-come, first-served basis. There are three locations:

*Monmouth College (Basement of Wallace Hall – the college’s main building – this is a new location this year)
For the first two weeks, VITA will be available on Monday and Wednesday, and Thursday, February 1,3,4,8,10, and 11. The M/W time will be from 4 – 7 p.m. and the Thursday time will be from 5 – 8 p.m. After that, the Thursday session will be dropped, and VITA will be available each Monday and Wednesday evening to April 14 except during the college’s spring and Easter breaks: March 8 & 10, and April 5.

*Warren County Library (60 Public Square).
Will hold sessions the following Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.:
