Hispanic Access Foundation Announces Continued Partnership With H&R Block; Program To Educate Spanish-Speaking Taxpayers In The New York City Metro Area

WASHINGTON, Aug. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Hispanic Access Foundation has announced it will continue its partnership with H&R Block, the world's largest tax services provider, to launch the next phase of its campaign "Preparate Para Un Futuro Mejor" (Prepare Yourself for a Better Future) to educate Spanish-speaking taxpayers about tax issues affecting where they live, work and congregate. The effort kicked-off August 8 and will focus on Hispanics in the New York City metropolitan area.

HAF and H&R Block will work with faith and community leaders throughout the New York City metropolitan area to discuss tax topics, promote informational seminars called Tax Talks and participate in community events.

"Hispanics, particularly those with limited English proficiency, need access to quality information in their language and to bilingual tax experts to help build their understanding about taxes," said Maite Arce, executive director of HAF. "With bilingual offices throughout the New York City metropolitan area, H&R Block is an ideal partner to help this population."

The program's goal is to increase Hispanics' knowledge of the key elements that are critical to understand and consider when filing a tax return. These elements include the benefits of establishing an accurate tax history in the U.S. and how a tax return is an important tool when building a financial plan.

"Hispanics have a unique set of issues they deal with when it comes to taxes that are confusing and easy to overlook," Arce said. "Through tax education we can help position them for greater long-term financial success."

For more information about the local events, call us toll-free at 1-800-206-9096 or visit http://hispanicaccess.org/events.
