This presentation will give an insight into the problems low income taxpayers face during tax season and the options available to file their taxes. Low income taxpayers have the option of going to a paid preparer such as H&R Block or a free tax preparing sites such as a VITA site. These tax preparers each provide unique services. Both the paid preparer and the free tax preparing sites have pros and cons to their services to low income taxpayers and will be addressed in the presentation. Providing the right assistance to a taxpayer can allow them to stop using check cashing stores and solve other financial problems they may have.
