NMU Student Group Offers Fee Tax Preparation Help
Nick Wahrer and Trent Batchelor from NMU.
Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Beta Alpha Psi, NMU’s Accounting & Finance Club, will be preparing taxes free of charge every Sunday from February 9th through April 12th from 1-4pm.
Club President and NMU Student Nick Wahrer and Faculty Adviser Trent Batchelor joined the SUNNY Morning Show with Walt & Mike to talk about the program.
They explained that they have two locations this year, one in the Marquette Room of the University Center on campus, and one in the Peter White Library in Marquette.
Wahrer said students and individuals earning under 50k gross income are the focus of the program, but all people who need assistance with their taxes are welcome to the program.
Batchelor said the effort is done through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program through the IRS, and all must pass a rigorous test to become certified to prepare taxes.
