Volunteer & Benefits Coordinator VISTA, UWKC Free Tax
The Free Tax Preparation Campaign is a community-driven effort to put money into the pockets of low- and moderate-income residents of King County by: • increasing tax refunds • improving access to tax credits • assisting individuals and households to apply for food, cash, and other public benefits These are powerful anti-poverty tools—such as tax credits like the Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, and Education Credits—that provide critical economic stability, reduce racial wealth disparities, and increase public health outcomes, particularly for communities of color. However, millions of dollars are left unclaimed by eligible recipients each year. As a member of the Financial Stability Team, you will play a key role in the success of the Free Tax Preparation Campaign by: •Working with external and internal partners to ensure that community members seeking tax assistance have access to and knowledge about other low-to-middle income assistance programs •Assisting with and providing oversight on volunteer recruitment for the Free Tax Preparation Campaign, with a goal of recruiting over 750 free tax volunteers •Providing input on UWKC’s outreach efforts regarding the roll out of Washington’s new Working Families Tax Credit, which will put up to $1200 into the hands of working individuals and families in Washington State. Your service will help households avoid the extremely prohibitive cost of tax preparation which often exceeds $400 in Washington state. Your work is particularly important due to our region’s growing economic instability, which has been exacerbated in recent years due to high inflation and COVID-19. Additionally, you will serve during an exciting time as Washington rolls out its first ever state tax credit for low-income residents. **UWKC AmeriCorps members must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to the first day of service.**
