MILWAUKEE — The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s Center for Community-Based Learning, Leadership, and Research is once again teaming up with AARP Tax-Aide to provide tax preparation assistance to students and neighborhood residents.

A free walk-in session will be held at UWM’s Cambridge Commons, 2323 N. Cambridge Ave., from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., on Saturday, March 4. No appointments are necessary, so media may wish to phone 414-229-6900 to be sure there are clients on hand.

UWM students, primarily from the Beta Alpha Psi accounting student organization, have been trained as tax assistance volunteers to help those who seek tax filing assistance to get all of the deductions and claims they deserve.

AARP provides experienced volunteers throughout the tax-season for each clinic date to assist student volunteers.

Additional dates for the free tax help sessions are:
10 a.m.-2 p.m., Saturday, March 11
10 a.m.-2 p.m., Saturday, April 1
10 a.m.-2 p.m., Saturday, April 8.

UWM as an institution is committed to creating impactful community partnerships that create change and help those in need, while also providing spaces for student learning.
