NCUA posts info on free tax prep help
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (12/6/07)—The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) has made accessible through it website a recent webcast on credit union opportunities to provide fee tax preparation service. The November webcast was a follow up to an NCUA Access Across America program, which included a panel on Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA), and was a collaborative effort between NCUA, the Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The webcast features speakers from the IRS and two credit unions, actively involved in the VITA program, who presented information regarding VITA and partnerships with community coalitions. Currently, nearly 200 credit unions are involved in the VITA program and related coalition outreach efforts. “Providing free tax preparation enhances credit unions’ ability to connect with their communities and provides a vital service to the members,” NCUA board member Gigi Hyland said introducing the webcast. “What’s more, the VITA program provides credit unions access to a network of national organizations, 325 community coalitions and the IRS.” Hyland promised future NCUA webcasts that will focus on ways to establish a VITA website and additional opportunities to partner with government agencies. Use the resource links below to access the NCUA webcast and to view additional information regarding the VITA program.
