GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — If you’re one of the estimated 35 million Americans who still needs to submit their tax returns, you can get some free help filing your taxes.

Certified students from Aquinas, Davenport and Cornerstone University are preparing tax returns Monday and Tuesday at the ACSET Community Action Center located at 121 Franklin Southeast in Grand Rapids.

The volunteers are working with the IRS as part of the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program; the program is designed to help low income residents. They say providing a free tax service allows low income residents to keep more of what they earned.

Volunteers will be available from 8:30 a.m. until 8:00 p.m.

In order to qualify, you must earn less than $57,000 a year. You must bring a picture I.D., your social security card, and your W-2’s for the volunteers.
