Tulane Law students staff the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program on up to 10 Saturdays each spring. Since 1992, well over 14,000 hours have been donated to this program by Tulane Law students. Tulane students are able to obtain pro bono credit for their participation in this program. Through the VITA program, students assist hundreds of individuals who could not otherwise afford assistance with their income tax returns. Students help prepare basic tax returns for taxpayers with special needs, including persons with disabilities, and elderly taxpayers. Interested clients may call 504-862-3518 year round for information about VITA services.
