Last night Touro Law students kicked off the tax season by continuing their decades-old tradition of assisting senior citizens, students, and others prepare their tax returns. In partnership with Bethpage Federal Credit Union the students were trained to assist their fellow Long Islanders to navigate the process and receive accurate refunds quicker and avoid falling victim to predatory tax preparers. The students speak multiple languages including Russian, Albanian, Spanish, Italian, and Arabic,. Touro’s VITA program will continue to provide service every Tuesday evening until the end of tax season. For additional information, please email [email protected].
