Emory participated again this year in the Atlanta Prosperity Campaign’s tax help program. Emory employees whose household income met certain criteria in 2009 were able to get free income tax preparation under the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program, managed on campus by the Office of University-Community Partnerships, with the Office of Community and Diversity.

Also, students enrolled in Professor David Frisvold’s freshman seminar on the economics of poverty and other students were trained by the IRS to provide income tax preparation services for clients of the International Rescue Committee in Decatur.

For those who endured the agony of filing their taxes and are waiting to exhale, Blomeyer Health Fitness Center’s got your back for income tax tension. Thursday, April 15, the center is offering 10-minute chair massages free for members.
