Donald Shaw, adjunct professor of accounting, coordinates the volunteer effort. Student volunteers must have successfully completed an upper-level taxation course and two January training courses. Students are equipped to handle New Jersey and Pennsylvania resident returns.

Tax returns are prepared using professional software on laptops. Individuals seeking assistance should bring pertinent tax documents such as W2 forms, interest statements, copies of last year’s return as well as any IRS tax item received in the mail.
