(BLOOMINGTON) - Indiana University law and business school students are providing free tax assistance to low-income, elderly and disabled residents.

The students are participating in the Internal Revenue Service's Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program through a walk-in clinic at the law school. Program volunteers are trained and certified by the IRS.

The program is available to people with an annual income of $49,000 or less if they have not received income from the sale of stocks, mutual funds or homes, and do not own businesses.

Law school student Daniel Huntley, a program coordinator, says it allows low- to moderate-income taxpayers avoid the fees charged by commercial tax preparers.

Law professor Ajay Mehrotra says it gives students an opportunity to give back to the community while learning more about the income tax system.
