Green Bay, Wis. — University of Wisconsin-Green Bay students are again providing free income tax assistance for low-income individuals and families, the elderly and students through the Internal Revenue Service’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. Return preparation begins the week of Feb. 4 and will run through Wednesday, April 10. However, no service will be provided the week of March 18 because of the University’s spring break.
