LABC services are FAST, FREE and LIFE CHANGING. Now in our 13th year, we prepared over 10,000 federal tax returns this past season, totaling over $16 million in refunds and tax credits. Relying on IRS trained volunteers, we are open year-round to support the tax needs of our clients.
In 2012, LABC recruited 343 volunteers, providing 18,000 plus hours, who prepared taxes at all sites enabling LABC to provide services to a large number of people in many different locations.
A vital part of LABC’s success is the contributions of a network of partners including Metro United Way (MUW), Intuit, Metro Government, PNC Bank, Louisville Urban League, Republic Bank and others. These partners provide financial assistance to LABC and products of interest to our clients, such as free or low cost bank accounts, pre-paid cards, and free check cashing assistance.
