Free tax help by CCBC students starts Feb. 13 on Catonsville campus

Accounting students at the Community College of Baltimore County will again offer help with tax returns to area residents through the CCBC Community Tax Prep Program.

Beginning Wednesday, Feb. 13, the students will help prepare income taxes for free those with annual incomes of $60,000 or less and who only require the basic schedules for individuals and households.

No appointment needed. Returns will be processed on a first-come/first-served basis.

Each taxpayer must bring the following documents:

• All 2012 tax records and receipts

• Social Security cards for all, including dependents

•  W-2 and any other tax forms, such as 1009-B, 1099-Div, 1099-Int, 1099-G, 1099-Misc, 1098

• A copy of 2011 or most recent tax return

• Direct deposit information (routing and account number or voided check/deposit ticket).

The program will be held Wednesdays, Feb. 13, 20 and 27 and March 6, 13, 20 and 27, 2-4 p.m., in room 326 of the Library (Y Building) on the CCBC Catonsville campus, 800 S. Rolling Road.

"CCBC has offered a free tax clinic for more than 25 years," said Pau Coakley, chairman of the school's business and management studies department, in a release. " It has provided practical accounting experience for our students and allowed our community clients to see how their taxes are being prepared. It's a win/win for everyone.'
