Free income tax preparation at KCKCC through April 13

Free federal and state income tax preparation will be provided through April 13 at Kansas City Kansas Community College.

Available to taxpayers with incomes of less than $51,000, the free preparation is offered in Room 3632 on the upper level of the Flint Building and will be available each Monday through March 4 from 5-8 p.m.; and Wednesday from 5-8 p.m. and each Saturday from 9 a.m.-noon through April 13 with the exception of March 20 and 23.

The preparation is a joint venture between students in KCKCC’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program and KC C.A.S.H., a 501 (c)  (3) coalition of local businesses and community organization who support working families in building financial stability.

A first-come, first-served location, taxpayers need to bring a photo identification for themselves and their spouse, Social Security cards for everyone in the household, last year’s income tax return, bank account and routing numbers for direct deposit and income documentation such as W-2s and 1099s.

Additionally, bring applicable deduction information including college tuition, student loan interest, itemized deductions, mortgage interest, property taxes and charitable contributions.

If elderly or disabled, paid property tax or rent documentation is needed.

The service is open only to Kansas and Missouri taxpayers and returns are not prepared for Schedule E for rental or royalty income, Schedule F for farm income, estate and trust returns or any year other than 2012.
