Charleston, SC, March 08, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Attorney Evan Guthrie of the Evan Guthrie Law Firm in Charleston, South Carolina helped with the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program in its Kickoff Weekend at Citadel Mall in Charleston, SC on Saturday February 4th 2012. The event was held by the Young Lawyers division of The South Carolina Bar in conjunction with the host organization Charleston Urban League. The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance or VITA provides free tax preparation for households with low to moderate incomes. Volunteers prepared basic tax returns for those that were in need of the service. Although the Kickoff Weekend did not officially start until 10am, there were many in line several hours ahead of time to secure their place.
Attorney Guthrie helped prepare several tax returns for individuals that needed assistance. There were over fifty individuals that got help with their taxes on the Kickoff Saturday. The Citadel Mall was a convenient place to hold the program as there was plenty of room and parking to handle the long lines and once the participants got their number in line they could go shopping or get something to eat. One of the local television stations also appeared at the event to do a story about Kickoff weekend and shot footage on location and interviewed volunteers and participants. Attorney Evan Guthrie was glad to participate in the event and learn more about filing income tax returns and was even able to talk a little about estate planning, probate, and discuss estate tax issues with the participants.
