UCAN helps low- and middle-income people with their federal, state and local taxes. We have a group of RSVP volunteers that receive special training so that they can help answer general tax questions, help complete tax forms, and help file returns. Our volunteers are able to provide help with a variety of tax schedules. This program has a special focus on those who are 60+ years old, but serves others as well. The program is invaluable for people with little income. Taxpayers end up with more discretionary income for everyday essentials, such as food and housing, as we ensure they receive applicable tax credits and deductions. The program is also invaluable to local communities, which receive an economic boost as money is returned to local residents.
