I was so impressed with how this program was run and the professionalism, care and knowledge of the students involved, that I have gone back every year for the last three years. I actually enjoy doing my taxes – now that says a lot! I highly recommend this wonderful outreach program to anyone who finds tax time overwhelming and stress producing! It has truly been a pleasant experience.
