Tax Assistance Program

Provided free tax assistance for the working poor

Temple Beth Torah in Nyack, NY coordinated a group of volunteers from the congregation who provided free tax assistance for the working power of Rockland County New York who qualify for the Federal and State Income Tax Credit (EITC). Volunteers included site greeters, interpreters, tax experts, and technical assistants as well as 25 members of the congregations that trained for over 400 hours to become certified tax preparers. As a result of this effort, over $100,000 was restored to the neediest families in their community through this assistance.
