Law students to aid with tax returns

CAMDEN Low-income Camden County residents can get free help with their tax returns beginning Jan. 28.

Rutgers-Camden School of Law students will be available to assist three times a week at the Camden County Library Nilsa Cruz-Perez downtown Camden branch, 300 N. Fourth St.

The Rutgers-Camden Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program is available on a first-come, first-served basis through April 9 on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 4 p.m. and Saturdays at 1 p.m.

"Preparing an income-tax return can be challenging for anyone that has specific financial questions," said county Freeholder Ian K. Leonard. "Providing access to tax preparers will give individuals the guidance and assurance they need to file their returns with confidence this year."

Those seeking assistance should bring their Social Security card or individual taxpayer ID number, as well as financial records, including all W-2 forms, 1099 forms, 1098T forms (tuition payments), and receipts for books and 1098-E for student loan interest, child-care expenses, total rent paid in 2013, and a copy of their 2012 federal and state returns.
