New IRS Grant to Help Cities Boost Free Tax Preparation
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is now accepting applications for a new, one-year Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) matching grant. These new grants will help cities and community organizations sustain or increase the capacity of their current VITA programs, which assist low-income families with free tax preparation and help them claim the Earned Income Tax Credit. The funding will also reach communities that have not had access to VITA programs, such as rural communities or underserved urban communities, and can also be used to improve the training of volunteers at VITA sites. Applications are due by Sept. 2.
