Community Action is seeking volunteers to assist during the 2015 tax season. No experience necessary, training is provided.
Community Action’s Free Tax-Assistance Program helps taxpayers with lower incomes maximize their tax refund or reduce their taxes due. Prepared by IRS-certified volunteers, taxes are filed electronically, allowing most taxpayers expecting refunds to receive their money within 5 to 10 days of filing. Volunteers are trained to look for specific eligibility requirements in order to help participants take advantage of the Earned Income Credit and the Child Tax Credit, and more — credits that can garner significant refunds for working families and individuals. Services are offered February through April.
