Organizing a Taxathon Recording

Are you looking for a different way to get the word out about your tax filing program? A taxathon is a tax filing event that can help you promote your tax site AND achieve other goals for your program early in the tax season.

A taxathon can:

  • Generate earned and social media attention
  • Attract new clients, especially those eligible for the EITC, early in the tax season
  • Increase the number of community members served
  • Provide tax prep volunteers additional practice early in the tax season
  • Incorporate more fun into tax filing

Learn firsthand from different sized VITA programs about their experiences hosting this type of event, and how you can start planning your own.

Here’s the recording in case you missed it:

You can also download the Training Reference Guide, and slides, and Q&A. The presenters created Taxathon Toolkits where you can find sample materials to plan your own event.


We encourage you to join us for a Taxathon Planning Support Session. Please email us if you’re interested in participating and weren’t able to attend the live training.
