shep30Shepherd Community Center is a place where our neighbors can get their taxes done for FREE. The program is called Save-Earn-Learn: Indy’s Campaign for Financial Fitness. Tax Preparation is led by two key partners: the Indianapolis Asset Building Coalition (IABC) and United Way of Central Indiana.

This service is a vital asset to our community as many of our low-income neighbors don’t know about the earned income tax credit, or don’t think they have to file because they make so little. Others resort to payday-loan stores offering refund-anticipated loans at very high rates of interest. By being a free Tax Preparation site, we help put money back into the pockets of our neighbors while educating them about saving money and building assets.

If you have tax preparation experience and are willing to help our neighbors navigate through the complicated world of taxes, please contact David Noe at Additional training and certification may be required.
