Vets Help partners with the
Corporation for National and
Community Service, a White House Agency, in 2012 and is an alternate on the National Mall during Inaugural Weekend.
We are pleased to announce
our partnership with the IRS and the VITA Program. We are authoring a pilot program between the IRS and the VA at the VA Northport, NY, medical facility. Stand by for times and locations in 2013.
Through the IRS’ VITA program, you can take advantage of one of the options below that fits you best-with the easiest being to click through on the MyFreeTaxes link below.
1. Going to a VITA site allows you to have face-to-face tax preparation with an IRS-certified volunteer or you can use the self preparation service where you prepare and file your own tax return with access to an IRS-certified volunteer if you have questions. VITA sites are generally located at community and neighborhood centers, libraries, schools, shopping malls, and other convenient locations. To find a VITA location near you that offers the do-it-yourself option (self preparation) or face-to-face tax preparation, go to Find a Location for Free Tax Prep.
2. If you are the type of person that is interested in free on-line tax preparation without going to a VITA site, you have several choices to prepare taxes for free from home, work, or anywhere with access to the internet. Software companies make their products available through public-private partnerships with the IRS. Free federal tax preparation and e-file options are available for all taxpayers. However, each participating company sets its own eligibility requirements and not all taxpayers will qualify for all companies. Review all the choices at IRS FreeFile and MyFreeTaxes.
EARNED INCOME TAX CREDIT IS FREE MONEY! For tax year 2012, a worker with no children who made less than $13,980 can receive up to $475. Single parents with three or more children who made less than $45,060 are eligible for $5,891. Married couples must file taxes jointly. Couples earning less than $19,190 qualify for a credit of $475. Those couples with three or more children qualify for $5,891 if they made less than $50,270. The IRS estimates that more than 26 million citizens received over $60 billion in federal, refundable credits in 2011.
Please press the MYFREETAXES.COM link BELOW to go to the website to prepare your 2012 Tax returns FOR FREE if you qualify! If you like how it works please drop us a line. If it is a problem, also let us know...
Our mission is simple – rebuild our US economy by connecting the dots for veterans and families before they are discharged from active service until they are reintegrated back into society as a productive family with stability, financial security, and an affordable home.
Our goal is to create a minimum of 200,000 jobs and be self-sustaining. By creating a second economy within the economy we are supporting each member business we create as an economic development group and maximize their ability to succeed. Family reintegration and wellness are critical for their success and incorporated into our corporate culture. PTSD remediation incorporating numerous programs is a cornerstone for family treatment and recovery.
Our partnership with the Corporation for National and Community Service incorporates all of our objectives and enables us to harness additional resources with similar groups and leverage them for effective and efficient deployment of assets and capabilities. These programs incorporate financial education for the disadvantaged and economic opportunities for all, including our 55 million disabled American brothers and sisters. This additional productivity we are fostering by enabling the Romney 47% is what will lead us out of recession and into a prosperous economy. Changing the tax rates on those already taxed is minimally effective – allowing the 47% to be prosperous provides a much needed tax base relief to all Americans. An annualized $ 50,000 salary for 50 million people is $ 250,000,000,000.00. An economic multiplier of 6 turns this into an additional $ 1.5 Trillion dollars annually being reinvested into our great country. Who needs deficit spending with that kind of untapped capital?
This year has been busy for us:
Vets-Help has been invited to actively participate in two White House Initiatives - Faith-Based and Neighborhood Program under Joshua DuBois, and Cummunity Leadership Program under Jon Carson. We were invited to the White House in the early summer.
Vets-Help opens new office in Mooresville, NC, to facilitate our competitive motor sports program to help address PTSD issues for veterans and their families. Our veterans and disabled friends can enroll in our program as we finalize details for college credit, expedited STEM certificate programs and learn and participate in racing programs. Please look at that page to see what it means to our guys and gals.
Team Venturini co-sponsored its cars including car 55 driven by Will Vought in the ARCA series this year.
ATC Racing team run by Mike Nuchols is spearheading our Go Kart program outreach for families in conjunction with our family appreciation festivals.
Vets-Help opens a new office at 121 Rolling Hill Road, Suite 230, in Mooresville, NC.

BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Throughout our Nation's history, an unbroken chain of patriots has strengthened us in times of peace and defended us in times of war. Yet the courageous men and women of the United States military do not serve alone. Standing alongside them are husbands and wives, parents and children, sisters and brothers. During Military Family Month, we celebrate the families who make daily sacrifices to keep our Nation whole, and we remember a most sacred obligation -- to serve them as well as they serve us.
Military families exemplify the courage and resolve that define our national character. For their country and their loved ones, they rise to the challenges of multiple deployments and frequent moves -- spouses who care and provide for children in their partners' absence, kids who make new friends and leave known comforts behind. They are the force behind the force, patriots who support their family members in uniform while enriching the communities they call home.
While our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen are defending the country they love, their country must provide for the families they love. Through First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden's Joining Forces initiative, my Administration has worked tirelessly to engage American citizens and businesses in this cause. Joining Forces encourages the private sector to hire veterans and military spouses, helps schools become more responsive to military children's needs, and expands access to wellness and education programs for military families. Since the initiative began in 2011, businesses have hired and trained more than 290,000 veterans and military spouses. My Administration is also taking action to improve mental health care and education for veterans, service members, and their families. Last year, I signed an Executive Order directing the Federal Government to increase access to these vital services. And this year, as a result of the Supreme Court decision striking down Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act, the Department of Defense moved swiftly to extend benefits to legally married same-sex couples.
Time and again, our service members and their families have sacrificed to protect the promise that defines our Nation -- life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. As we work to repay this enormous debt of gratitude, I encourage every
American to do their part. Together, let us support our military children as they learn, grow, and live their dreams. And let us keep our military families strong and secure.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim November 2013 as Military Family Month. I call on all Americans to honor military families through private actions and public service for the tremendous contributions they make in the support of our service members and our Nation.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this thirty-first day of October in the year of our Lord two thousand thirteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-eighth.

We are investing in multiple manufacturing plants to expand and create jobs. We are investing in suitable commercial buildings as well to expand our capabilities in Florida, Illlinois, Montana, North Carolina, and New York including properties for our adaptive resorts and adaptive living centers.
Essential elements of the Vets-Help Mission include providing for the well-being of our target population. These include family safety programs, adaptive sports and skills programs, and cooperation with other Abilities community members to efficiently implement and effect the well-being of our joint communities.
