Law students help with tax issues

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Valparaiso University School of Law students are giving free advice about federal and state tax preparation to eligible residents as part of the Internal Revenue Service's Volunteers in Tax Assistance community service program. The program is available now at the law school, 656 S. Greenwich St., Valparaiso.

The service is available to taxpayers who have an annual income of $49,000 or less. That includes income from the sale of stocks, mutual funds, or homes. Other restrictions apply.

For more information or to make an appointment, individuals can visit the group's Web site, http://valpo.edu/law/vita or call VITA's voicemail system at (219) 465-7900. Questions can also be directed to the group's e-mail, valpo.vita@gmail.com.

Last year, students completed 700 tax returns and logged 1,500 volunteer hours, third-year law student Christen Commers said in a statement. Commers is the VITA site coordinator for 2010.

  1. "...not those committed in the heat of an argument." If I ever see a man physically abusing a woman or a child and I'm close enough to intercede I will not ask him why he is abusing her/him. I will give him a split second to cease his attack and put his hands in the air while I call the police. If he continues, I will still call the police but to report, "Man down with a gunshot wound,"instead.

  2. And so the therapeutic state is weaonized. How soon until those with ideologies opposing the elite are disarmed in the name of mental health? If it can start anywhere it can start in the hoosiers' slavishly politically correct capital city.

  3. So this firebrand GOP Gov was set free by a "unanimous Supreme Court" , a court which is divided, even bitterly, on every culture war issue. WHAT A RESOUNDING SLAP in the Virginia Court's face! How bad must it have been. And all the journalists, lap dogs of the status quo they are, can do is howl that others cannot be railroaded like McDonald now??? Cannot reflect upon the ruining of Winston and Julia's life and love? (Oh I forget, the fiction at this Ministry of Truth is that courts can never err, and when they do, and do greatly, as here, why then it must be ignored, since it does not compute.)

  4. My daughter is a addict and my grandson was taken by DCS and while in hospital for overdose my daughter was told to sign papers from DCS giving up her parental rights of my grandson to the biological father's mom and step-dad. These people are not the best to care for him and I was never called or even given the chance to take him, but my daughter had given me guardianship but we never went to court to finalize the papers. Please I have lost my daughter and I dont want to lose my grandson as well. I hope and look forward to speaking with you God Bless and Thank You for all of your help

  5. To Bob- Goooooood, I'm glad you feel that way! He's alive and happy and thriving and out and I'm his woman and we live in West Palm Beach Florida, where his parents have a sprawling estate on an exclusive golf course......scum bag
