Approximately 50,000 DC residents claim the federal and local EITC each year, channeling more than $120 million into the local community. Several DC EITC Campaign partners provide free tax preparation assistance to thousands of DC-area residents during the tax season.
In 2012, the DC EITC Campaign:
- hosted 11 free tax preparation sites in communities throughout DC
- recruited, trained, and placed more than 500 volunteers to prepare taxes
- prepared tax returns for over 6,300 taxpayers, receiving over $8.7 million in federal plus state/local refunds
Throughout the year, the members of the DC EITC Campaign offer financial education workshops, credit and housing counseling services, and matched savings programs to free tax assistance clients and others.
