Twenty-two JSU Students Participated in the SaveFirst Initiative During the 2014 Tax Season


During the 2014 tax season, JSU students collaborated with 550 students from fifteen other campuses across the state to assist low-income, working families for the SaveFirst initiative under Impact Alabama, a student service program.

Twenty-two JSU students worked at free tax preparation sites in Jacksonville and Anniston preparing more than 320 tax returns for working families – helping them to secure $574,000 in tax refunds and saving them $96,000 in commercial tax preparation fees.

In total, SaveFirst students assisted more than 8,200 families who claimed $14.9 million in refunds and saved approximately $2.5 million in commercial preparation fees – a 31% increase in families served compared to the last tax season.
