UF Law recognized for tax assistance
GAINESVILLE, Fla. – United Way gave UF Law and its student organization the Association for Tax Law a plaque yesterday recognizing the college’s successful 2014 VITA tax site. UF Law students prepared $773,321 in tax returns and saved $127,328 in tax preparer fees. This $900,649 in community impact represented 35% of the combined impact of all 13 sites in the county and was the largest single site by far. Congratulations to site coordinator Josh Giancarlo (JD 14), his assistant and rising 3L Christopher Weeg, the 40 law students who contributed over 1,000 pro bono hours to the project, and Faculty Adviser Steve Willis.
