Fellowship Place partners with Yale University and the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program

Fellowship Place was very fortunate again this year to partner with Yale University and the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA). Nine student volunteers, led by Tylar Bloch and Bessie Bauman, conducted free income tax preparation services on campus on Friday, Feb. 14 and Saturday, Feb. 15. A majority of individuals working with Fellowship’s Employment program are new to filing taxes and may not have the financial resources to pay a for-profit tax preparer. The volunteers provide a valuable service that helps our clients understand and fulfill their tax filing responsibilities and get their tax refunds in a timely manner. Special thanks to Tylar, Bessie, and their awesome team!

Fellowship Place Hosts Free Tax Preparation Clinic with Yale University

For the third consecutive year, volunteers from Yale University have partnered with Fellowship Place to provide a free tax preparation service for agency clients and members of the Dwight neighborhood. The volunteers are part of VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance), a program sponsored by the IRS to help low income people file their taxes. This service is especially helpful for people new to the workforce and who have never been responsible for filing taxes before. The Yale students held the first of two tax preparation clinics on Feb. 15. The second clinic will be on March 2. A very special thank you to student leaders Jasmine Liu and Paul Banegura for organizing the clinics.
