Community Tax Aid Inc
Community Tax Aid (founded in 1987) believes that all taxpayers deserve the opportunity to file accurate, timely tax returns.
Community Tax Aid, Inc. (CTA) serves low-income families in the offers tax preparation services at absolutely no charge to low-income families in the Washington, DC area.
Nationally, fewer than 1% of low income taxpayers receive free assistance. If the metropolitan DC area lost its free tax services, the average low-income family would have to pay an average of $268 to have their returns prepared. In many cases, taxpayers who cannot afford a paid preparer, and who are ill-equipped to file a return without assistance, will simply fail to file.
The average income of our clients is under $28,000 and our free services ensure that they don’t risk adding to their tax bill, or reducing their refund with tax preparation fees and accelerated refund fees.
Your tax-deductible donation will help us continue to provide this service and support our efforts to reach even more families and train more volunteers.
