Looking for New In-depth Opportunities to Make a Difference

Submitted by Susie Latta

Make a difference in your community by partnering with IRS  to meet individual taxpayers' needs for tax education and assistance. In these tough economic times, tax benefits can offer stronger financial stability for people and the communities in which they live. They can also serve as the starting point in realizing dreams. Partnering organizations prepare tax returns free for those whose incomes are below $54,000. Also check out the partner Outreach Corner for links to newsletter articles, podcasts, widgets and other electronic products to help reach out to customers with timely tax news they may need.

If you represent an organization that works with any of the following populations, why not look further to see how you can become involved?

Populations We Serve:
• Low- to moderate-income population
• Older Americans
• Students
• Military
• People with disabilities
• Employees
• English as a second language
• Free Tax Return Preparation for You by Volunteers

If your group is interested in partnering opportunities in your area, send an email to partner@irs.gov, and let us help you get started making an impact in your community today!

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer but need to find an organization in your area to link up with, please submit your contact information via our VITA/TCE Volunteer and Partner Sign Up and your information will be forwarded to the appropriate local IRS office.

Several Extension agents in Kansas are involved with Tax Sites in their communities. If you are looking to get involved in more in-depth programing and show significant impact with your work, this is a great program to accomplish those goals. The Financial Management PFT is a great resource if you are doing or want to do this type of work.

For more information and the resources available through the VITA/TCE program, or want to become more involved, contact a member of the Financial Management PFT.
