Tax season is here, and as millions of people begin the process of determining how much they might owe, it can be difficult for some.
The Houston charity Neighborhood Centers Inc. is, once again, offering free tax preparation services to tens of thousands of people who might not be able to afford the help. Last year, the IRS-certified volunteers were able to identify $42 million dollars in refunds for people who might be intimidated by the tax code.
Neighborhood Centers spokeswoman Elizabeth Ferrer says, "For the people we reach, it's a little bit more challenging, because they don't have the resources to get an informed and professional service related to their taxes."
The Neighborhood Tax Centers are available at 15 locations around Houston through the April 15 tax deadline.
