COD tax event Local residents can get free help filing their taxes at a Sunday, February 24, event hosted by Community Consolidated School District 89 and the College of DuPage.

The Accounting 2200 students can prepare forms 1040 (federal); Schedules A, B and C; small schedule D (three items or less); and all state returns. Visitors are asked to bring tax information, the previous year’s return, and account numbers for direct deposit.
