Are you experiencing life circumstances that prevent you from focusing on your education? Single Stop can help.
Free Tax Services
Single Stop is partnering with Community Link during the 2021 tax season to offer VITA Free Tax Services to eligible participants. If your household income in 2020 was $57,000 or less, you could qualify to have your taxes prepared and submitted through the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. This year, the sites will be 100% contactless virtual. You will not need to go to a site this year for your tax preparation — simply choose the sign-up location that is closest to your zip code.
Borrow a Laptop or Mobile Hotspot for Spring
We want to do all we can to ensure you continue in your classes and achieve your academic goals.
If you are having trouble accessing technology, a limited number of laptops and WiFi hotspots are available for loan — at no cost. You will be able to use these devices as long as you are enrolled in classes and until we are able to resume traditional, in-person classes.
To request a device for spring 2021, complete the laptop loan application. The Single Stop team will contact you with more details after they review your application.
Central Piedmont has partnered with Single Stop, a non-profit organization, to create a one-stop shop that can connect you with a variety of resources you may need to stay focused on your academic goals. Single Stop uses specially-designed software that, through a series of questions, identifies resources that students may be eligible for. These resources include:
- free tax preparation and counseling
- benefits counseling
- Financial Literacy Programming: Keys to Financial Success
- referrals for other campus and community resources
All Single Stop services are free for qualifying Central Piedmont students and your family members.
Single Stop is also committed to serving our veterans and their families. If you are a veteran, please call or stop by Single Stop in Central Campus, Central High Building Room 100 to make an appointment.
