CAAB Launches TaxSmartDC Initiative

The TaxSmartDC Initiative is a year-round educational engagement on tax-related matters (tax planning, tax credits, information on free tax preparation services outside of the tax season, tax forms, etc.) for-the-benefit of low- and moderate-income individuals and families in the District of Columbia.

 

Washington, DC – August 15, 2017 – Capital Area Asset Builders (CAAB) is pleased to announce the launch of the TaxSmartDC Initiative as part of the DC EITC Campaign.

The TaxSmartDC Initiative is a year-round educational engagement on tax-related matters (tax planning, tax credits, information on free tax preparation services outside of the tax season, tax forms, etc.) for-the-benefit of low- and moderate-income individuals and families in the District of Columbia. CAAB will proactively disseminate tax-related information through in-person presentations, webinars, media interviews and social media posts.

The DC EITC Campaign is a citywide, cross-sector initiative that promotes economic security and asset building for low- and moderate-income individuals and families by providing access to information on the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), free tax preparation services and capacity building opportunities throughout Washington, DC.

The goals of the DC EITC Campaign are to: 1) Promote awareness of the Federal and DC Earned Income Tax Credit to ensure that eligible workers know how to claim the credits; 2) Educate taxpayers about numerous Federal and DC tax benefits; 3) Provide opportunities for free tax preparation for qualified DC residents; and, 4) Connect taxpayers with programs and services to improve financial stability.

CAAB is very grateful for the financial and technical support provided by the Office of the DC Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development, Citi Community Development, United Way of the National Capital Area, and the DC Office of Tax and Revenue.
