Students perform outreach services by providing education on the rights and responsibilities of U.S. taxpayers to the community particularly for those whom English is a second language.

“My experience in the tax clinic was really great! I learned so much with the hands on experience and training I received. And what was even better, I feel like I gained an additional family through the process – my tax family. I would, and have, advised many students to join this clinic. The experience will be priceless.”
