AUM Partners for Successful SaveFirst Season

Again this year, 41 AUM accounting students partnered with SaveFirst during tax season, providing free tax preparation to low-income working families in Montgomery. Students helped  each family save an average of $400 per tax return. “Partnerships like these are invaluable to the success of this initiative in providing needed services to hardworking families and giving meaningful service opportunities to students,” said Maggie Baucom, AmeriCorps Member and SaveFirst Volunteer Coordinator.

This tax season, AUM accounting students served at free tax preparation sites across Montgomery to help prepare 1,638 tax returns for working families, securing them more than $2.8 million in tax refunds and saving them more than $650,000 in commercial tax preparation fees.
