CFATE strives to improve the quality of life and economic conditions for individuals from underserved communities through tax education and outreach services.

Help the Homeless Access Stimulus Funds

Help us reach the millions of low-income and unhoused individuals who have not yet received their 2020 and 2021 Economic Impact Payments. We're talking a minimum of $3,200 per person and much more for families! Individuals who do not normally need to file a federal income tax return because they either (a) do not earn enough to have taxable income or (b) have no income to report should file a simple income tax return to claim any missed or unclaimed stimulus payments. A 2020 return is required to claim either the first or second stimulus payment, and a 2021 return is required to claim the third stimulus payment.

CFATE's Featured Outreach Initiative

Free Virtual Tax Clinic

CFATE's free virtual tax clinic offers individuals the opportunity to learn how to prepare and e-file their own tax returns using online software. A certified tax volunteer guides participants step-by-step through the tax preparation process. Did we mention it's free? And better yet, participants can attend the clinic from the comforts of their own home using either a smartphone, tablet, or computer.
