Oh hello, tax season

Thursday, January 18, 2018 by Katy McElroy

It’s just about that time of year again, but don’t worry Foundation Communities is ready to help. The Community Tax Centers program will have about 600 volunteers on hand to assist low- and moderate-income Central Texans with their taxes, for free. The volunteers have received IRS certification and have been trained to handle Affordable Care Act questions. The free tax preparation is available for households that earn up to $55,000 a year; however, for households of five or more that number goes up slightly. There will be six Community Tax Centers throughout North, South and East Austin. Round Rock will be serviced as well. Call United Way’s 211 line for locations, hours and what to bring to a session, or visit for more information.
