People with basic taxes often find tax filing overwhelming and need your help. Many want to file taxes but can’t afford to pay hundreds of dollars. The average cost to file taxes in Indiana with a preparer is $220! In Northwest Indiana, many of your neighbors, co-workers, and friends turn to paid tax preparers. However, this can be unnecessarily costly and sometimes preparers don’t provide the tax credits people need.

Volunteer tax preparation helps Americans claim the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Child Tax Credit (CTC), federal tax benefits that help workers care for their families, withstand unexpected economic changes, and reduce poverty!

Will you volunteer to work with a group of like-minded volunteers? You’ll build relationships while gaining valuable skills and giving back to your community!
