RIO HONDO STUDENTS PROVIDE FREE TAX PREPARATION
Rio Hondo students certified by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as tax preparers will provide free basic income tax return preparation to qualified individuals and families. The service is made possible through a partnership between Rio Hondo, the IRS, and its Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program.
The service will be available beginning Friday, Feb. 8 through April 12, Fridays only, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Rio Hondo College Technology Building. Appointments are recommended and can be made through the Rio Hondo College business office (562) 463-7359.
The eight to ten volunteer students became IRS certified through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance I class offered at Rio Hondo this fall. The tax preparation service serves as the class lab. This is the first year that Rio Hondo College has offered this service.
