Albers touts income tax prep help, live on Local 5

Cofrin School of Business lecturer Pat Albers appeared live in a Monday (Feb. 2) segment on Local 5 News, talking about UW-Green Bay’s involvement in the IRS’ Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. As we’ve told you here before, each year UW-Green Bay students provide free income tax assistance for low-income individuals and families during tax time. Return preparation starts this week and runs through April 1, with no service the week of March 16 because of spring break. “A lot of our accounting students go on to work for public accounting firms,” Albers said, “so not only is this a great experience for them getting tax preparation experience, but also the client exposure — so they’re able to work on their people skills, their communication skills. So it’s a benefit for the students, the taxpayers and the future employers.” You can watch the full segment (and check out our press release).
