Accounting Students Prepare for 2018 Tax Season

Guest speaker, Randy Tilley, speaking to Accounting students
January 17, 2019

Students in Assistant Professor, Joe Welker’s, ACCT 251 class welcomed guest lecturer, Randy Tilley, to campus on Monday, Jan. 14. Tilley, the division administrator of the Audit Division for the Idaho State Tax Commission, has lectured Welker’s students prior to tax filing season for the past six years highlighting important changes and updates to the Idaho tax code.

Tilley’s visit was especially valuable as students from the class will also participate in the College’s annual Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program this semester. Beginning Jan. 28, students will be filing individual income taxes at no charge for fellow students and the community.

“A big thanks to Randy,” said Welker. “This was his final update for CWI students, as he is retiring after 36 years of service to the State Tax Commission.”

Services are available on the following dates and times through the 2018 tax season:

Mondays:  1-3 p.m. / Nampa Campus Academic Building, Room 201
Thursdays:  2-4 p.m. / Ada County Campus Pintail Building, Room 1203

Over the past seven years, CWI students have helped individuals save hundreds of thousands of dollars in preparation fees! Those with an annual income of $54,000 or less qualify for this free service. All are encouraged to stop by for tax assistance from one of our highly-skilled preparers!
