Did you have a job in 2018? Was your income less than $55,000? For the 12th year, the Academy of Finance seniors will be offering free tax preparation. Our program is IRA certified and offers appointments beginning Feb. 8, 2019, through April 12, 2019. Located conveniently at Monticello High School, this free service allows students to showcase their knowledge and professionalism while also giving back to their community.

All students are trained by Mrs. Susan Bahrenburg and Mr. Eric Shewmaker. Mrs. Bahrenburg serves as the director of the Academy of Finance and has more than twenty five years of experience as a Certified Public Accountant. Mr. Shewmaker is a Certified Tax Preparer with more than fifteen years of experience.
