The club began three years ago as a student’s senior capstone project, according to Gwinnett County Public Schools. It morphed into a club, and now, each year, students look forward to helping people prepare their federal returns.

You can work with VITA to get your taxes filed at the Tax Clinic of Dacula. Students will be there on March 18 and 25, and April 1, 8 and 15 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Bring all documents you need for your taxes and be prepared to wait; it’s first come, first served.
