The coalition, which has established Volunteer Income Tax Assistance sites throughout Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties to provide free tax preparation to individuals and families with low or moderate incomes, also provides information and education about asset building, including banking and savings.
Since the coalition started doing free tax preparation in 2004, the Volunteer Tax sites have done approximately 49,000 federal tax returns with a yield of approximately $57 million in federal tax refunds, returned to Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties.
Sunrise Rotary’s donation in 2018/2019 supported purchasing computers to assist with this tax filing assistance.
