Free tax help at MATC Downtown and Oak Creek campuses

Need a tax break? The MATC Oak Creek Campus is offering free tax help (in its 34th year) in room A120, through April 9.

Operating days and times are Wednesdays 4-7 p.m. and Saturdays 9 a.m- noon. It is, however, closed during Spring Break March 26 and 30, and again on April 2. You must register at least one hour before the starting of sessions.

Services are guaranteed to the first 30 registrants, and possibly more if time allows. Downtown Milwaukee Campus (in its 14th year at 700 W. State St.), hours are Tuesdays 6-7:30 p.m. and Saturdays 10 a.m.-1:30 p.m., through April 12, but it is also not open Spring Break.

Students are trained and helped by staff to see to it that you get professional care. Keisha Harper, (former MATC student), said, “I heard about this through her,” referring to Kenyata Luten, the former MATC student sitting next to her, “and I think it is wonderful.”

Luten added, “It’s nice,” when asked how she felt about the free break on her pocketbook. This opportunity is open to the public with household incomes of $54,000 or less. All processes are provided by the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program.

These on-site services are sponsored by Guaranty Bank. For more information, please call Bobbie Sherrod, 414-297-8417, Downtown Milwaukee Campus; or Jim Benedum, Oak Creek Campus 414- 571-4757.

Also, you can visit the information desk in the Student Center of the Downtown Milwaukee Campus or the Oak Creek Campus at 6665 S. Howell Ave. (lower level), both during scheduled hours of operation.
