Imagine the difference an extra $1,600 can make for a struggling family. That’s the average return from our Tax Preparation program in 2012, and it added up to a staggering $20 million in refunds and credits for low-income New Yorkers.
You don’t need to have any experience to work on this important project. Sign up to attend an information session today to learn more about becoming a tax prep volunteer.
The program has a tangible, positive impact on the participants. Taxes may not be fun for most of us, but for our volunteers it’s a rewarding experience that allows them to give back to New Yorkers in need – and the program is growing. We filed 1,800 more returns this past season, and we’re looking to expand the program this year. We need 350 volunteers to beat these numbers this tax season.
