Does your organization want to offer free tax preparation in 2013? Well, the IRS has opened the application window for grants to provide this service. From May 1 through May 31st, your organization can apply for a 3 year grant to provide tax prep assistance under the TCE (Tax Counseling for the Elderly) and VITA (Volunteers Income Tax Assistance) programs.
The criterion for each program is a little different but you can easily find all the info you need in Pub 1101 for the TCE program and in Pub 4671 for VITA. Both programs are handled through www.grant.gov and you only have until the end of May to submit your grant application.
