The Williamson County Financial Stability Coalition (The Coalition) is a unique gathering of dedicated staff and volunteers who, over the past two years, have collaborated to strategically help low to moderate income and elderly residents become more financially stable.
The Coalition is working to improve the economic means of low to moderate income and elderly residents within Williamson County, initially by providing free income tax preparation services. This will allow these residents the potential to realize a larger amount of earned income tax credits, child tax credits and education credits, thereby increasing their income and improving their standard of living.
The Coalition aims to improve the economic means of the Williamson County residents by increasing their access to free income tax preparation services. In its first year (tax year 2010) the Coalition expanded the availability of free tax preparation services by increasing the hours at several sites and adding a site in Taylor and one in Leander. For the 2011 tax year, the Coalition added two sites in Georgetown – one in Sun City and one at the Georgetown Community Resource Center. This year, the Coalition is partnering with The Caring Place in Georgetown and will offer one-day satellite opportunities in several rural communities.
