You choose from 6 sites around Austin!
For over 25 years, Foundation Communities has helped empower low-income families in greater Austin to build a better financial future. You can join our mission by volunteering with the Community Tax Centers.
Each year, our volunteers put about $35 million in tax refunds back into the pockets of low-income families in our community - refunds they use to buy food, pay outstanding bills, and save for their children's future. In 2018, the tax centers expect to see more than 20,000 families. That’s a lot of people! To make this happen, we need 600 active volunteers.
No experience is necessary - we'll train you! Don't want to prepare taxes? We have options! Besides volunteering as a Tax Preparer, we also need Client Liaisons (client intake) and Spanish/English Translators!
Whether you’re looking to build your skills and experience, make new friends, build your professional network, or to simply contribute your time to the community, this opportunity provides a substantial and meaningful way to volunteer. And if you’re a CPA or Enrolled Agent, you may be eligible for free continuing education credits.
Our tax centers will be open in 2018 from January 22 to April 17. Sign up now to make sure you get important information about training for the upcoming tax season!
