Free tax preparation helps families claim millions in refunds

volunteer income tax preparation

Through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program, volunteers working with ISU Extension and Outreach file tax returns at no cost for Iowa individuals and families earning $51,000 or less. The federal and state tax refunds these Iowans are then able to claim bolster family incomes and contribute to the local economy.

Last year, 60 volunteers at 34 rural sites completed tax returns for 1,621 low- and moderate-income Iowans. Iowa State has been providing this service in rural areas for about a decade.
