Thomas Jefferson School of Law is offering free income tax return preparation for students, low-income families, senior citizens and others who can’t afford professional tax services from now until April 12.
TJSL's Tax Law Society has operated the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program since 1998.
The tax clinic is open to walk-in clients on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3-7 p.m. The entrance is at 495 11th Ave. in downtown's East Village.
The Tax Law Society is advised by TJSL Professor Richard Winchester, a former attorney in the national tax office of PricewaterhouseCoopers. He is a national authority on employment tax policy and the taxation of the closely held business.
The tax clinic’s student volunteers receive training to become IRS-certified, operate the TaxWise software, interview clients effectively and assemble a proper tax return.
