Join us for ‘Telling Taxpayer Stories’ – A Virtual Training and Q&A
February 26, 2015Print
For low-income workers at tax time, Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) sites can mean the difference between a tax return that offers a financial boost and one that provides little if any help at all. VITA sites provide free tax preparation services, raising awareness within communities about eligibility for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and other tax benefits and ensuring that these credits are collected by tax filers.
Unfortunately, the critical role VITA sites play in communities across the nation is not widely understood. On March 3, Tax Credits for Working Families and the Corporation for Enterprise Development (CFED) will present a webinar on the importance of sharing client stories to help protect and expand VITA services. Telling Taxpayer Stories, hosted by CFED’s newly-launched Taxpayer Opportunity Network, will provide a virtual training on how to tell compelling stories about the importance of these programs for lower-income workers and attract media attention as VITA Awareness Day approaches on March 10.
