Let UIW Help Take the Stress Out of Filing Your Taxes

May 3, 2019

San Antonio – Since 1984, the University of the Incarnate Word (UIW) has offered IRS certified volunteers to provide free tax preparation services to the community through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program.

The VITA program offers free tax help to households with incomes of $60,000 or less and helps working families take advantage of available tax credits. Students from UIW’s H-E-B School of Business & Administration and volunteers from the university community help prepare basic, current year tax returns for eligible taxpayers.

The UIW VITA site is open Saturdays from 10 a.m. to noon, now through April 14 in room 126 of the Joyce Building located on the university’s main campus (4301 Broadway, 78209). No appointment is necessary.

Taxpayers must bring the following to receive assistance:

  • Driver’s license or photo I.D. for the taxpayer and spouse (if applicable)
  • Social Security Card or Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN) for all household family members (copies are accepted)
  • All W-2 Forms and 1099 tax forms
  • Other tax forms received (if applicable)
  • Copy of prior year tax return (if applicable)
  • If filing jointly, both spouses must be present when the tax return is signed
  • Documentation for any deductible expenses

Certain eligibility requirements apply. Please visit www.uiwvita.com for more information.
