Prisoner Re-entry Program

If your agency or organization provides services to offenders or parolees or has a prisoner re-entry program, why not include tax information to help recently released individuals with their taxes?

Take a look at the FREE products here! You can share the DVD and use the easy-to-follow facilitator’s guide with everything you need to deliver training. There also a FREE brochure developed by the IRS to help these individuals understand their tax responsibilities, the benefits of filing income taxes, the available tax credits and much more.

Here is more background on a national effort and opportunities to become involved. Check out the products below for your prisoner re-entry program!
