South Carolina Law Students Offer Free Tax Assistance to Low Income and Elderly Residents

VITAWebBanner2Columbia, SC… From February 9 to March 30, University of South Carolina School of Law students will volunteer their time to provide free tax assistance to the low income and elderly community.

Through the school’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program—now in its 22nd year—students will prepare and file simple South Carolina and federal tax returns in the law school lobby on Wednesdays from 5:30 – 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 – 12 a.m. The service is provided on a first-come, first-served basis, and no business or self-employment returns or complicated forms can be completed at this site.

The USC School of Law lobby is located at 701 S. Main Street and is entered from Green Street, between Assembly and S. Main.

VITA is one of over 20 programs available through the law school’s Pro Bono program, the nation’s oldest all-volunteer pro bono program. For more information about the other volunteer opportunities, click here.
