Law, business students partner to help with taxes

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Students from Indiana University's Maurer School of Law and Kelley School of Business are teaming up to offer free tax assistance to low-income, elderly, disabled, and limited English-speaking residents.

Beginning Wednesday, qualified residents will be able to visit a walk-in clinic on Wednesday and Thursday evenings at the law school. The IU students are giving the free advice as part of the Internal Revenue Service's Volunteers in Tax Assistance program.

To be eligible, residents must have an annual income of $49,000 or less. That includes income from the sale of stocks, mutual funds, or homes. Other restrictions apply.

The VITA program is a great way for students to give back to Bloomington and learn more about the federal tax system, law professor Ajay Mehrotra said in a statement. The clinic will run through March 12.

Valparaiso University School of Law students also participate in the VITA program and offer assistance to residents with tax preparation at the law school.

  2. Hail to our Constitutional Law Expert in the Executive Office! “What you’re not paying attention to is the fact that I just took an action to change the law,” Obama said.

  3. What is this, the Ind Supreme Court thinking that there is a separation of powers and limited enumerated powers as delegated by a dusty old document? Such eighteen century thinking, so rare and unwanted by the elites in this modern age. Dictate to us, dictate over us, the massess are chanting! George Soros agrees. Time to change with times Ind Supreme Court, says all President Snows. Rule by executive decree is the new black.

  4. I made the same argument before a commission of the Indiana Supreme Court and then to the fedeal district and federal appellate courts. Fell flat. So very glad to read that some judges still beleive that evidentiary foundations matter.

  5. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.
