For taxpayers in the low-to-moderate income bracket


Beyond Careers VITA volunteers are IRS-Certified at a minimum of  the Advanced level.  Most volunteers are accounting students from Houston Community College (HCC) and Houston Baptist University (HBU). These college accounting students can get Experiential Learning and Community Involvement hours.

High school students who become IRS-Certified for Standards of Conduct and Intake/Interview tests would be able to get community services hours as Greeters, help with Outreach and Marketing or assist with Drop-off site.  Bi-lingual students can help as Translators.




The new tax law nearly doubled the standard deduction and changed many itemized deductions. This could affect your withholding needs. Do a #PaycheckCheckup to avoid #IRS surprises.
