Prosper Tax Help Kicks off its 20th Year Larger than Ever

February 27, 2024 | Posted in Tax Services, Financial Stability |

The 2024 Tax Season is the milestone 20th year for Foun­dation Communities’ Prosper Tax Help program. It also comes with some firsts. The program will offer free tax preparation at a record 1O different sites in Travis and Williamson Counties, including the first ever site on an Austin Community College campus.

Just a short walk away from the new ACC ACCelerator tax site, the new season for Prosper Tax Help was officially kicked off on February 9. ACC Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Dr. Shasta Buchanan explained that the new tax site was envisioned as a way to help ACC students and the community get help filing their taxes and secure larger tax refunds.

“We proposed the idea of establishing tax prep­aration site right here at ACC Highland Campus.” said Buchanan. “The response from Foundation Communities was immediate and enthusiastic.”

Foundation Communities Executive Director Walter Moreau put the 20th year for Prosper Tax Help into perspective with statistics – more than 313,000 tax return filed, and more than $520 million in tax refunds returned to clients. Tax Help staff member and client Belinda Valdez explained how the program has helped her receive tax credits she didn’t even know existed. And, longtime Prosper Tax Help supporter Congressman Lloyd Doggett encouraged Central Texans to not miss out on money they’re entitled to by visiting a Prosper Tax Help site to have their taxes done free of charge.

This year, Taxpayers with children can claim up to $7,430 in Earned Income Tax Credits. You can learn more about our free tax preparation services and make an appointment at or by calling 2-1-1.
