Tax season is underway!  Let Community Action’s experienced tax volunteers prepare your income tax return.  Our volunteers undergo several hours of training and pass a comprehensive exam before earning IRS certification.  They are knowledgeable about tax credits and can help you get the maximum refund.  Free tax preparation is available to households with incomes of less than $53,000.  We cannot prepare military or small business returns.

Confused about how the Affordable Care Act will affect your taxes?  Our volunteers can help.  Call today for an appointment, 315.782.4900, ext. 271.
