Single Stop Helps CPCC Student File Free Tax Return

Vanisha Hairston, a dental hygiene student at CPCC, had been using TurboTax to prepare her taxes until she heard about CPCC’s free tax services, available through its Single Stop office.

Single Stop’s services are relatively new to the college. The office opened its doors on CPCC’s Central Campus in Jan. 2016 and has been busy connecting students to the resources they need to succeed in life – including free financial, tax and legal services.

Single Stop’s VITA program, an initiative that provides free tax services to individuals who earn less than $54,000 a year, was the perfect fit for Vanisha, a single mother juggling a full-time job with going to school and raising a seven-year-old little boy.

Once she made the appointment through CPCC’s Single Stop office, she found the process to be surprisingly fast. “I was in the office for no more than 90 minutes,” she says. “It definitely would have taken me longer to prepare my own taxes at home. Plus, I had the help of the Single Stop team who simplified the preparation and filing process. I would highly recommend the office’s services to others.”

As a result of the team’s efforts, Vanisha received a significant tax refund which she’ll apply toward her student loans.

To date, CPCC’s Single Stop office has helped file more than 550 tax returns for CPCC students and community members. In addition to tax services, the office provides financial, legal and healthcare assistance to qualifying individuals.
