Impact America's SaveFirst initiative is in its twelfth year of operation. Last year, over 590 trained students from twenty-one campuses prepared tax returns for more than 9,000 families at 23 free tax sites. The campus collaboration helped working families secure more than $15.6 million in tax refunds, saving them over $3.6 million in commercial tax preparation fees. This year, they expect to prepare over 10,000 returns at tax sites statewide.
