Unless filling in a 1040 is your procrastination technique of choice, check out Penn State’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. They’re quick, easy and FREE as long as your income was below $51,500 in 2013. Extra bonus: They deal with lots of grad students, so if you have to file in multiple states, have scholarship income, have a weird fellowship, etc., they’ve seen it all before. FYI: I’ve used VITA for the past three years and have loved it, plus I get my taxes in early! (Sadly, they aren’t paying me for this glowing endorsement. No program is perfect.)

Our purpose and policies
All posts to this blog are a reflection of the views of that particular author, not the CIDD Graduate Student Association as a whole. In order to keep discussion open but directed, any comments or opinions about a specific post should be directed to the author of that post, either publicly in a comment on that specific post or in private correspondence.
These policies are in place because this blog is meant to be a place for individual grad students to discuss and explore their own ideas, moderated by the CIDD Graduate Student Association as a whole, not solely a place for the CIDD GSA to collectively post about things already discussed by the group. Directing responses to specific posts at other graduate students involved with this blog is likely to be fruitless as they may not be familiar with the subject at hand.
