free tax prep returns to Columbia City
The Rainier Community Center will host a free tax preparation site again this year through United Way of King County's Free Tax Prep Campaign. Community members will be able to get their taxes done, claim all credits they are eligible for, sign up for additional benefits and services, and enjoy excellent customer service — all with the help of our wonderful volunteers!
If you'd like to join the volunteer team and help hard-working South Seattle families keep more of what they earn, United Way is looking for volunteers to commit to a weekly shift from January 15 – April 15 to help with tax preparation, interpretation, and public benefits access.
United Way's Tax Campaign is entering its eleventh year offering tax preparation services free of charge to help community members claim all eligible credits, all with the assistance of amazing community volunteers. Last year, United Way's 650 volunteers helped complete 14,400 tax returns, brought $20.7 million back into the community in refunds, and connected hundreds of community members to important benefits like food stamps and utility assistance.
Rainier Community Center had an exceptional group of talented, diverse, multilingual volunteers last year – including the Tax Campaign’s youngest volunteer (13 years old!) – who all gave back to their community and had a great time to boot with potlucks, holiday celebrations, and more. If you would like to join the team and help hard-working South Seattle families keep more of what they earn, United Way is looking for volunteers to commit to a weekly shift from January 15 – April 15 to help with any of the following:
• Tax Preparation
• Public Benefits and Financial Aid Access
• Interpretation services
United Way offers training for all volunteer positions. There are shifts open at the Rainier Community Center, El Centro de la Raza, and sites throughout King County, with lots of availability in evenings and weekends. Learn more and sign up at www.uwkc.org/taxvolunteer.
