Filing your taxes doesn’t have to be complicated
How United Way volunteers helped one client get his finances in order

 

Reginald Crisp had years of complicated taxes to sort through when it was time to file his 2018 taxes. A retired state employee, Reginald was trying to get his financial affairs in order when the Franchise Tax Board referred him to United Way’s Free Tax Prep program. When he learned there was a Free Tax Prep site at the Oak Park Community Center near his house, he made an appointment and soon found himself face to face with four women he now affectionately refers to as the Four Amigos.

The K2C Seed Account will be maintained by UWCCR for the benefit of individual students enrolled in participating Sacramento area schools. The K2C Seed Account will receive any incentive funds from the K2C program and accrue interest based on ScholarShare’s Passive Age Based Portfolio. To earn the matching incentives, families must open their own Family-owned ScholarShare 529.
