Pam Smith, associate professor of accounting, is the faculty coordinator of the UTSA site. Accounting students who are members of Beta Alpha Psi and Alpha Kappa Psi will provide assistance at the on-site center.
Participants should bring a driver's license or photo identification; Social Security card or individual tax identification number for all members in the family; all W-2s; all 1099 forms and a copy of last year's tax return.
