Tamika went from being homeless to living in a town home in four years. She worked hard to get to get there raising three boys, working, and going to school to earn a degree as an IV technician. As the sole provider for her family, saving - particularly having a three month cushion - is important to her. She chooses AccountAbility Minnesota (AAM) to do her taxes so that she can maximize her refunds impact on her financial future.
For 41 years, AAM has provided free tax and financial services to low- and moderate-income taxpayers. We facilitate economic security by helping many of the people we serve use their tax refunds to help them meet basic needs, build credit, and save.
Leveraging the support of more than 550 volunteers, we prepare taxes and offer financial services to thousands of Minnesotans via free clinics around the Twin Cities. In addition to ensuring that our customers claim all the tax credits they earned, we address the "money moment" of tax time connecting people to financial services that create pathways to economic security.
With the support of staff, our volunteers work cooperatively at our free tax clinics and are the core of our ability to provide these services in our community each year.
If you are committed to helping hardworking families get ahead, we have a volunteer position for you! One hour of your time can put $2,000 or more in the pocket of a family struggling to make ends meet.
Volunteers of all skills commit one, four-hour shift per week during the tax season (end of January-April 15, 2014). See our various opportunities listed to the right.
Mission: AccountAbility Minnesota (AAM) assists Minnesotans to move out of poverty by providing pathways to increase income, build assets and become financially secure, and by advocating for change that breaks down barriers to financial success.
