Students and faculty at the Greenbrier Community College Center of Bluefield State College provided more than 105 hours' free income tax assistance through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program this year.
Leila Kennedy, Assistant Professor of Accounting, notes BSC GCCC students in accounting and business administration prepared 35 federal returns and 45 state returns. Thirty-two returns were filed electronically. "This is our first year to do electronic filing," she said. "I believe it was successful and hope to expand its use next year."
BSC GCCC students and faculty offered VITA services each Saturday, February 8 - April 12.
