$10.5 billion in Earned Income Tax Credits are left unclaimed every year, often by the families that need it most. Why? Because the process of filing taxes is too difficult. Code for America helps non-filers access free, trustworthy, clarifying, and accessible services to successfully file, meaning families with low income could get as much as $20,000 from filing a tax return this year.
Several free tax filing services for families with low income are available starting January 31 at GetYourRefund.org - Code for Americaʼs online, mobile-friendly application connecting tax filers with free, IRS-certified tax help. Please consider spreading the word about the free services available at GetYourRefund.org and GetCTC.org. You’ll find additional details in their 2022 partner outreach guide.
