Delivering Tax Services to Those in Need
Community Tax Aid, Inc. (CTA) is a non-profit organization founded in 1987 that provides free federal and state income tax preparation services to low-income individuals and families. We serve clients during the tax season at sites in Washington, D.C., Alexandria, Arlington, Falls Church, Prince George’s County, Wheaton, and Gaithersburg. CTA provides representation services to our clients who receive notices from the IRS or state tax agencies and also prepares some tax returns during the off season.
Volunteering in your Community with Community Tax Aid
Volunteers like you are vital to our organization. They run the operations at the various tax sites and are the core to our existence. These volunteers contribute countless hours to CTA. Every tax season, hundreds of people contribute their time and expertise at one or more of CTA’s tax sites, serving families and individuals across the Metropolitan Washington, D.C. area. Last year alone volunteers provided more than 14,000 hours of service which directly enabled clients to receive over $8.7 million in federal and state refunds.
Because of our volunteers, clients are able to properly file complex tax returns and they are able to have a unique service provided to them free of charge.
You can help CTA assist individuals and families by volunteering as a tax preparer, a translator, savings promoter/intake specialist.
