[NCTC_SiteManager] Individual Tax Preparation Conference Cal
One option available to VITA programs to have an impact beyond the traditional tax preparation model is to enable their low income clients to individually prepare and file their taxes online.* Two efforts in the past tax season highlight some of the challenges and opportunities for scale and sustainability through this avenue.*
FoodChange, based in New York City, partnered with Intuit’s Tax Freedom Project.* The two partners hosted Community Tax Events in which local community organizations, such as high schools and the YMCA, allowed the public to use their computer facilities to access the Intuit TurboTax Freedom Edition.
One Economy facilitated income tax preparation with community partners on theBeehive.org, a website with information and resources about money, health, jobs, school and family.* This year an individual tax preparation opportunity allowed clients with adjusted gross income less than $40,000 to prepare and file their own taxes for free.
