Don't Let Taxes Get You Down

Nobody likes taxes and if you are a young person trying to get by in this area you probably don't have a lot of money to throw at the problem. There are many free tax prep clinics available to low income residents. I was involved with one in my area last year and I can vouch for the high quality volunteer tax preparers and the personal attention you get by attending a tax prep clinic.

If you are comfortable filing electronically on your own, use the IRS Free File program. They will give you step by step instructions if you are low income (under $56,000 in 2008) or you can just use the efiling without instructions if you are over income.

Not scared of Tax Prep? Why don't you consider volunteering to staff one of these clinics! They are recruiting volunteers now to be tax preparers.
