Each year students from SULC participate in the VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) Program. Students assist both elderly and low-income members of the community in preparing and filing their taxes. Students gather information, prepare returns and file them on the behalf of those who come to the law center for assistance.
This year the students filed 82 returns and VITA reports that only two were rejected, meaning that SULC had the lowest reject rate of any VITA site this tax filing season. IRS officials noted that the low reject rate was due to the students’ sharp eye to initial preparation and quality reviews.
Congratulations to our students who participated in this program: Eileen S. Andrus, Pamela King, David Points, Darryl Carnes, Tiffany Monroe, Patrick Jester, Danielle Kennebrew, Laronica Ford, Jeff Mcalpin, Alexis Quiller, Taylor Johnson, Kalyn Mone’t Garner, Nchekube Onyima, and Kenneesha Johnson.
