Peoples Income Tax, Inc. founder and CEO, Chuck McCabe, announced that his firm will make free tax preparation services available for the third consecutive year to families supported by Connor’s Heroes, a Richmond-based charity providing support to Richmond-area families that have children with cancer.
Mr. McCabe noted, “Many families supported by Connor’s Heroes have incurred extraordinary medical expenses resulting in financial hardship and cannot afford professional tax preparation help. Some of these parents that might usually prepare their own tax returns because they cannot afford to pay a tax professional are now faced with new tax complications and added stress due to the illness of their children. Peoples Tax is committed to alleviating one source of frustration and expense by providing free individual income tax preparation services, including year-round tax planning, for these parents,” he said.
“Peoples Tax Professionals,” McCabe noted, “are qualified to prepare any individual tax return, no matter how complex. Many of our tax professionals also write tax course curriculum to train tax professionals and CPAs for our sister company, The Income Tax School, which greatly enhances their tax knowledge.”
In addition, Peoples Tax is also running a supply drive at all 5 tax office locations throughout tax season to help fill Connor’s Heroes donated backpacks and totes full of small items that help relieve some of the strain and stress during this difficult time. The backpacks, given to children who have just been diagnosed with cancer, are filled with games and toys to provide a distraction while at the hospital — and the totes, given to their parents, are filled with practical items, such as journals, thank you cards, and gift certificates for things like gas, groceries, house cleanings, and family portraits.
Over the past 30 years, Peoples Tax has provided free tax preparation services for many taxpayers with financial need, including residents of The Flagler Home at St. Joseph’s Villa, Richmond homeless shelters, The Virginia Home for Boys and Girls and participants in the Greater Richmond Employment Assistance Team (GREAT) welfare-to-work program.
