COMPLETING FREE TAX FORMS FOR LOW INCOME EMPLOYEES – completing over 900 low-income employees’ tax forms for free.  For example, the $8/hour employees we helped, our research shows, received a benefit worth a 3% raise as our tax preparers found advantages and credits that employees would have missed.

The 900 tax forms completed this year showed an increase of 150 (20%) over last year.

COMPLETING FINANCIAL AID FORMS  – we are working in four cities to lead an effort to have FAFSA forms completed at the same time that tax forms are filled in.
