Rutgers-Camden Law Students Providing Tax Assistance through Volunteer Program

CAMDEN — This tax season, hundreds of low-income New Jersey citizens will receive free assistance from Rutgers–Camden law students in preparing income tax returns.

The student-run Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) project is sponsored by the Internal Revenue Service, which provides comprehensive training for the students so they can deliver this extremely valuable service to residents.

The student volunteers will seek to help clients complete their income tax returns on time and identify as many deductions as possible.

Beginning Jan. 28, the Rutgers School of Law–Camden’s VITA project is offered on Tuesdays and Wednesdays beginning at 4pm and on Saturdays beginning at 1 pm through April 9, 2014.  The site operates on a first-come/first-served basis and can only serve a limited number of clients each session.

Each session will be held at the Nilsa I. Cruz-Perez Downtown Branch of the Camden County Library, located on the Rutgers–Camden campus at 300 North Fourth Street (at the intersection of Fifth and Penn sts.).

For more information about the VITA program at the Rutgers School of Law–Camden, contact Pam Mertsock-Wolfe at pmertsoc@camden.rutgers.edu or (856) 225-6406.
