Students travel to Harvey over Spring Break to assist taxpayers

HARVEY, N.D. – Five students involved in the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program at Minot State traveled to Harvey on March 17 to help local residents file their taxes.

Students Kristi Chance, Sangmi Park, Edel Mae Alvarez, Chiti Nkhuwa, and Carlton Mhangami all took a break from their Spring Break to lend their tax knowledge and services.

VITA offers tax preparation services free of charge to individuals earning less than $52,000 a year, elderly individuals, military members, and small business owners that qualify.

MSU has been offering tax assistance through VITA since Feb. 5, but this is the first time the program has traveled out-of-town to help taxpayers.

“The demand has remained steady since the beginning of March,” said VITA program director and MSU instructor Nicole Wald. “We have assisted over 50 clients this year.”
