Do you only prepare taxes in Austin?

How can I volunteer at a Community Tax Center? 

 Our tax centers rely upon hundreds of volunteers who serve as tax preparers, client liasons, and translators.  It's too late to sign up as a volunteer for the 2014 tax season.  However, there are many other ways to get involved with Foundation Communities (and our 2015 volunteer recruitment will begin in October 2014, so keep us on your calendar!).  For more information about volunteering email jackie.blair@foundcom.org.  

Foundation Communities does not discriminate in its provision of services through all its programs on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, marital status, religion, or political beliefs.
