Walsh Students Volunteer Time at Detroit Taxathon

TROY, Mich., April 12, 2019 — Walsh accounting and taxation students participated in this year’s Taxathon event on Thursday, April 4 and Friday, April 5, 2019 to provide free tax preparation services to Detroit residents eligible for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC).

“The Taxathon is an excellent way for Walsh students to gain practical hands-on experience outside of a class setting while providing a valuable community service,” said Heather Rinkevich, Director of Academic Advising at Walsh. “The Taxathon is an important program and Walsh has been proud to participate for many years.”

In addition to the Taxathon event, the Walsh Accounting and Taxation Student Organization and graduate-level taxation students volunteer with the Accounting Aid Society annually to file taxes for local families and individuals for free. The Accounting Aid Society provides tax and financial services to underserved taxpayers in southeast Michigan.
