ABOUT OC FREE TAX PREP

Through the OC FREE TAX PREP coalition, Orange County United Way, Citi and all partners work to increase the number of financially stable households in Orange County. Coalition members play unique roles, each working to positively impact the financial health and resiliency of Orange County residents by assisting hardworking taxpayers to earn, keep, and save their money. 

Key OC FREE TAX PREP activities are providing free tax preparation services to the low-income community, and conducting outreach and education, raising awareness-of and access-to tax credits, such as the Earned Income Tax Credits, which result in money returned to our community, often bolstering a struggling family’s ability to provide for their children, as well as stimulate the local economy.
