Students organize tax clinic to help their peers
March 19, 2013

Under the guidance of Professor Lianne Smith-Stow, Georgian College accounting students will offer free, professional income tax preparation and EFILE services to students at the Barrie Campus.

The Georgian Tax Clinic, a partnership between Georgian College and Canada Revenue Agency, is gearing up for another busy season. More than 30 student volunteers will staff the clinic from March 25 to April 5.

“The combination of training, just-in-time coaching and real clients makes this an ideal experiential learning environment for student volunteers,” says Smith-Stow. “Students have the opportunity to enhance their customer service and technical skills, and build confidence in their abilities – all while providing a valuable service to their peers.”

Students who take advantage of the service can ask questions in a comfortable environment, become more knowledgeable about their individual tax situation and of course, save money too.

The clinic will be held in the School of Hospitality and Tourism building, room E212.
