Local taxpayers with annual incomes of $40,000 or less will be able to get free tax preparation help from University of Notre Dame and Saint Mary's College accounting students, beginning Feb. 11.

The Vivian Harrington Gray Tax Assistant Program (TAP) will offer services at nine sites in South Bend and Mishawaka through April 17. The centers will be closed March 10-17 and April 7-9 due to the students' spring and Easter breaks. For a complete listing of centers and hours of operation, call 574-631-7863 or visit business.nd.edu/Accountancy/Domestic_TAP/.

TAP Director Ed Hums said the volunteer preparers assist domestic clients, who are either U.S. citizens or have legal permanent resident status, including unemployed taxpayers whose 2011 earnings were $40,000 or less prior to collecting taxable unemployment benefits.
