Students from UGA’s School of Law have again joined forces with a national program to provide free federal and state income tax preparation and electronic filing.
While the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program will serve anyone seeking help, several groups will receive top priority: those with low to moderate income ($30,000/single and $40,000/married), those who are 60 years or older, those who are disabled and those who do not speak English. The VITA program provides free help to individuals who could not normally pay for income tax assistance. Last year, the law school’s VITA volunteers prepared more than 300 tax returns.
Tax services will be offered:
- Mondays from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Saye Building, 110 W. Hancock Ave., and the Nellie B. Community Center, 200 Zetella Drive;
- Tuesdays from 4 to 6 p.m. at the UGA School of Law, room C, and from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at Catholic Social Services, 160 Winston Drive, suite no. 2;
- Wednesdays from 4 to 6 p.m. at the UGA School of Law, room C, and from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Rock Springs Community Center, 285 Rocksprings Court.
Services also will be available from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on March 5 at the Rock Springs Community Center and Feb. 19 and April 2 at the Nellie B. Community Center. The last day for tax preparations through the VITA program is April 6.
