United Way Offers Free Tax Assistance for Local Low-Income FamiliesrnrnPHILADELPHIA, Jan. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Once again this year, United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey (UWGPSNJ) will provide free tax assistance for low-income families from Western Montgomery County to the Jersey Shore through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, a locally-run IRS-supported tax preparation service that is free for residents making a total household income of less than $52,000 per year.rn”For individuals and families struggling to make ends meet, a few extra dollars back in their pockets during tax season can make all the difference,” says Jill Michal, president and CEO, UWGPSNJ. “Through VITA, we help more people in our region take advantage of valuable tax credits and receive refunds that can alleviate the stress caused by financial hardships. United Way works to ensure that every adult has access to the resources they need to help them achieve and sustain financial stability.”rnThe IRS estimates that one in five eligible taxpayers miss out on one of the biggest boosters to family incomes â€“ the Earned Income Tax Credit, a refundable credit that can return up to $6,143 per qualifying family â€“ simply because they are unaware or do not file their taxes. Tax preparation done right can result in valuable tax credits for low-income workers that can be used to pay down debt, save for a home and build assets.rnWith UWGPSNJ’s support, programs like VITA help improve financial stability for thousands of individuals and families throughout the region so they can take control of their futures, and in turn, reinvest back in their communities. During the 2013 tax season alone, VITA helped complete 26,000 tax returns, returning a collective $35 million to local taxpayers across the region.rnUWGPSNJ mobilizes IRS-trained volunteers to assist qualified individuals with tax preparation ensuring that they obtain the full refund available. Individuals can receive free one-on-one tax filing support at tax assistance sites throughout the region. As part of its larger income agenda, UWGPSNJ also helps to connect working individuals with resources for financial education, covering topics such as establishing good credit, budgeting and long-term money management skills to help them build assets and save for the future.rnTo learn more about VITA or to find a site near you, please visit UnitedForImpact.org/VITA.rnAbout United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New JerseyrnUnited Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, serving communities in Pennsylvania’s Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties, and New Jersey’s Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cape May and Cumberland counties, is part of a national network of more than 1,300 locally governed organizations that work to create lasting positive changes in communities and in people’s lives.

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Barrack, Rodos & Bacine announces that it has filed a class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the District of Utah, Freedman v. Nu Skin Enterprises, Inc., et al., Civil Action No. 2:14-cv-00033-PMW, on behalf of purchasers of common stock of Nu Skin Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE: NUS) (“Nu Skin” or the “Company”) during the period from July 10, 2013 through and including January 14, 2014 (the “Class Period”).rnrnNu Skin is a global direct selling company with operations in 53 markets worldwide. The Company purports to develop and distribute premium quality anti-aging personal care products and nutritional supplements under its Nu Skin and Pharmanex brands. The Company’s global operations generated more than $2.17 billion in revenue during 2012.rnrnThe complaint alleges that during the Class Period, defendants issued a series of false and misleading statements concerning the Company’s business practices and growth prospects, particularly with respect to its Mainland China operations, upon which the Company has become very dependent for a very significant amount of its revenue and growth. Sales in Mainland China accounted for nearly one third of the Company’s total revenue in the first nine months of 2013. Further, the complaint alleges that while the Company issued public statements discussing its positive results and increased guidance, it failed to disclose what are alleged to be fraudulent sales practices and non-compliance with laws and regulations in China, or their potential impact on the Company. Then, in January 2014, two Chinese agencies announced that they are probing the Company’s marketing and business practices in China and that it was suspected the Company was operating as an illegal pyramid scheme. These revelations had an immediate impact on the Company’s stock price, causing shares of Nu Skin’s stock, which had risen from less than $70 per share to a high of $140.50 per share during the Class Period, to tumble over 44% in the two days of trading after these announcements. Nu Skin stock closed the trading day on January 17, 2014 at less than $80 per share. rnrnPlaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of all purchasers of common stock of Nu Skin during the Class Period. The plaintiff is represented by the Philadelphia-based firm of Barrack, Rodos & Bacine and by the Salt Lake City-based firm of Karrenberg & Anderson, both of which have significant experience in prosecuting class actions on behalf of investors in cases involving financial and corporate fraud.rnrnIf you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than March 22, 2014. To discuss your rights regarding the appointment of lead plaintiff and for additional information about your interest in this class action, please contact plaintiff’s counsel, Barrack, Rodos & Bacine, at the following toll-free number: 877-386-3304, or via e-mail to Jeffrey W. Golan (email@example.com) or Julie B. Palley (firstname.lastname@example.org).
