Income tax clinics for postdocs

Do you have questions, or need individual support filing your taxes this year? Connect with Robert Sproul, a retired faculty member from the School of Accounting and Finance, for a personal 15-minute consultation regarding your tax return. These consultations may take place in-person on campus or via telephone. For the in-person option, attendees will check in at the GSPA front desk (Needles Hall, 2201) before being directed to an office for the meeting. For the telephone option, attendees must provide their number upon registration, and will receive a call at the agreed upon meeting time.

Attendees must have attended or watched the income tax seminar for postdocs in order to participate in a tax clinic. 

The next tax clinics are scheduled for Thursday, April 13 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and Monday, April 24 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. Register through ZCal to book your 15-minute slot.
