Beyond Careers VITA
Beyond Careers Volunteer Income Tax Asssitance (VITA) provides governmental assistance in the form of free tax preparation program for taxpayers in the low-to-moderate-income bracket with income under $58,000 per year, who otherwise would incur a cost for these services. We use TaxSlayer, the IRS approved, online software. VITA program returns thousands of dollars in Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Child Tax Credit (CTC) and other tax credits to these taxpayers. We are able to electronically file tax returns and provide direct deposit at no cost for qualified taxpayers.
Beyond Careers is now scheduling volunteers for our VITA site at high schools and community colleges in the Greater Houston and surrounding areas. Beyond Careers VITA will train current and future teams consisting of accounting students, accountants, CPAs and other to become IRS-Certified volunteer tax preparers at the Advance level. Volunteers will gain community service. Eligible volunteers can receive Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
Beyond Careers FSA
Beyond Careers Volunteer Income Tax Asssitance (VITA) free tax preparation program will have a Facilitated Self Assistance (FSA) program that will be implemented at community colleges, high schools, middle schools, apartment complexes and other appropriate locations. The FSA is at No Cost for individual and family taxpayers in the low-to-moderate income bracket who are able to complete their own tax return.
Students will supervise the FSA site, conduct outreach and promote Beyond Careers FSA program at their school and in the community. This would be a great way for those students to get communit-service hours.
Beyond Careers will have students take its Independent Study that will utilize the IRS Link & Learn VITA online, self-paced training to become IRS-Certified volunteers with Beyond Careers FSA.
