Talking Taxes and Free Tax Return Services with Accounting Professor Tim Anderson

In this tax-season special edition of Bengal Financial Literacy Show, Chris Chatwin and Tim Anderson attempt to help those with Forosophobia (fear of taxes) by addressing changes in state and federal tax laws and offering information about a free tax preparation service presented by accounting students and faculty at Idaho State University.

Tax prep services are being offered Thursday nights at the ISU Rendezvous Center, room 213. Interested parties should gather needed tax documents and be prepared to drop-off the materials between 5:00 pm and 9:00 pm through March 14.
