This is not limited to only the southwest Virginia region, individuals from any county or state are able to apply for this service. Tax preparation is offered year round. AppCAA’s Tax Preparation Service is in partnership with the Virginia CASH Campaign operated through the Virginia Community Action Partnership (VACAP) and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). During 2022, AppCAA prepared tax returns that totaled just under $1,000,000 for the 2021 tax season, with an estimated $139,000 saved in tax preparation fees.
