Accountancy School Students Help With Local AARP Tax-Aide Service

Posted on: February 8th, 2012 by

Graduate students from the University of Mississippi’s Patterson School of Accountancy are participating in AARP Tax-Aide, a program of the AARP Foundation that has helped people of low-to-medium income with their income tax returns for more than 40 years.

The service is offered to the general public 1-5 p.m. each Thursday through April 15 at Stone Recreation Center on Washington Avenue in Oxford.

The students are supervised by return preparers who have had several years of experience and have also passed the IRS certifying exam, said Tonya Flesher, professor and Arthur Andersen Lecturer in accountancy.

Stephen Quinn and Rufus Wilson visited the center to see why the student help matters.
