Get Free Tax Preparation Services

Duke Law School offers services for eligible employees, community members

Volunteers from Duke Law School offer help with taxes to eligible employees, community members

Duke Law School volunteers are providing free state and federal income tax assistance to eligible members of the Duke and Durham communities.

Duke employees and members of the public with a household income of $64,000 or less can use full-service, drop-off or online self-assisted tax preparation, which ends April 8. Households with an income under $66,000 can use an online facilitated self-assisted service.

Appointments are recommended, but walk-ins are accepted if time permits. Appointments take place at the Duke Credit Union or the Duke Law School’s Blue Lounge. Participants must bring their tax documents.

This is the 38th year the Duke Law VITA student organization has organized the service. Last year, VITA completed 423 tax returns and netted about $575,000 in federal and state refunds and roughly $142,000 in tax credits.  

“VITA is a great service that alleviates the financial burden of having to pay for income tax preparation,” said Kim Burrucker, director of public interest and pro bono for the Duke Law School. 

Services are also available for foreign students and scholars affiliated with Duke University.
