MINOT, N.D. - A group of Minot State University students are putting their knowledge to good use by helping the community during tax season.

A group of twelve accounting students will assist moderate to low income individuals with their taxes, free of charge.

On Saturday mornings between 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and Monday afternoons between 3:30 p.m.- 7:30 p.m., you can visit with them in a sit down session, alleviating the stresses of doing your taxes alone.

To set up an appointment you can contact 701-858-3122.

All student tax advisors have gone through tax trainings to prepare them to give you the best tax experience.

"It's definitely good on their end and then it kind of gives them a confidence in the community and in the students coming out with all of these different accounting and tax laws to learn. They can see that we do know what we're doing and we're competent in our abilities and can provide services to people," said MSU Accounting Student, Rachael Ferguson.

"Whenever someone asks me, 'Why did I get that deduction or why is that number there?' It's informational for me to explain to them and education for me for whenever I go into my accounting degree and deal with future clients," said MSU accounting student Jacquelynn Andrew.
