GSC Accounting Students Offering Free Income Tax Preparation Assistance

For Immediate Release: March 7, 2014
Contact: Annette Barnette
Public Relations & Marketing Director
Glenville State College
Glenville, WV
(304) 462-6391

Glenville, WV-Glenville State College accounting students are again providing assistance to taxpayers who need help filing their basic federal and West Virginia income tax returns. The free service is available to students, faculty, staff, and local residents. There are two options available to qualifying taxpayers this year: MyFreeTaxes and VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) Free-File.

The GSC Department of Business Accounting 399 class partners annually with the Internal Revenue Service. Two senior accounting majors (Ashlee Henry of Powhatan, Ohio and Amy Lanham of Mt. Nebo in Nicholas County, West Virginia) are IRS certified and are helping taxpayers under the supervision of GSC Associate Professor of Business and Accounting/Cheryl McKinney, CPA.

McKinney said, “We are pleased to have assisted many campus and community folks for more than eighteen years as part of the IRS VITA program. We look forward to helping them again each year.”

A new option at the GSC site this year is MyFreeTaxes, which is an easy, fast, and secure federal and state tax filing site powered by H&R Block software. The online tool allows eligible taxpayers with a combined household income of $58 thousand or less to self-prepare and electronically file both federal and state returns free of charge by visiting www.myfreetaxes.com/gscremote and following the easy steps.

Taxpayers who prefer to have a trained volunteer assist in the tax filing process or have questions about using MyFreeTaxes can stop by the GSC VITA Free-File site. It is located in the GSC Heflin Administration Building Ernie Smith Computer Lab Room 309B. The site is open from 3:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays through April 15th, and no appointment is necessary.

Taxpayers may choose the TurboTax, H&R Block, FileYourTaxes, or Tax Act programs based upon eligibility criteria. Once an account is created at the GSC VITA site, it may be accessed from anywhere. One distinguishing characteristic of VITA Free-File is that taxpayers may electronically file both federal and state returns at no charge. If accessed directly without first acquiring an account through the on-campus VITA Free-File site or the MyFreeTaxes online portal, there will be a charge for the state return.

Those who wish to receive this free tax assistance from the GSC VITA Free-File site and accounting students should bring: copies of their 2012 tax returns, wage and earnings statements (Form W-2) from all employers, interest and dividend statements (Form 1099), any other relevant information or forms relating to income and expenses, social security cards for taxpayers and dependents, and bank routing and account numbers for direct deposit/ direct payment if desired.

Students who received financial aid and/or paid tuition and fees should each bring a copy of their Tuition Statement (Form 1098-T) provided by the school that lists tuition and fees paid and scholarships received. Those who cannot locate that document may request a duplicate copy or find it on their EdNet accounts. Students should also retain receipts for other course-related expenses such as fees, books, supplies, and equipment that are required for the courses at eligible educational institutions.

For more information about the GSC VITA Free File or MyFreeTaxes program, contact McKinney at Cheryl.McKinney@glenville.edu or (304) 462-6263.

Lifeguard Classes To Be Held at GSC

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: February 17, 2014

For More Information: Annette Barnette
Public Relations and Marketing Director
Glenville State College
Glenville, West Virginia
(304) 462-6391

Glenville, WV- Lifeguard classes are scheduled to be held soon at Glenville State College.  Students can either sign up ahead of time or simply attend the first class.

“When I first moved to West Virginia, there was a lifeguard shortage. One pool had two guards. That was it for the entire summer. So the pool operated on limited hours because the law requires two guards. By offering classes every year, we can help provide trained lifeguards to pools throughout North Central West Virginia,” said GSC Aquatics Manager Jennifer Wenner.

The lifeguard classes will be held on Saturdays and Sundays in March starting on the 15th at the GSC Pool, which is located in the basement of the Physical Education Building.  Classes begin at 9:00 a.m. and last until 4:00 p.m. Students must be at least 15 years of age to enroll in the course.

Wenner says all participants must complete the pre-course test on March 15th to be able to register for and take the remainder of the course. The pre-course test consists of three parts. First, there is a non-stop, non-timed, 300 yard swim test of six laps using different techniques such as the breast stroke or freestyle swim. Students will then tread water for two minutes without the use of their hands. Finally, they will be required to swim 25 feet, surface dive to retrieve a brick, resurface, swim back to their start, and exit the pool without the use of a ladder.

All classes must be attended in order to pass the complete course, which includes 50 percent book work and 50 percent pool time to apply the lessons learned in the classroom. The cost is 150 dollars which includes all materials needed for the entire course.

For more information, contact Wenner at Jennifer.Wenner@glenville.edu or at (304) 462-6436.
