Community Tax Aid, Inc.


FREE Tax Prep for Low- and Moderate-Income Taxpayers * CPE Eligible * Remote or In-Person

Community Tax Aid, Inc. (CTA) is a nonprofit community service organization that provides FREE tax preparation for low- and moderate-income individuals and families in New York City. We are the oldest FREE tax preparation service in the country.

We are different from other free tax prep organizations in that our training (when accompanied with volunteer tax preparation) qualifies for CPE credit for CPAs - a definite benefit for the volunteer.

Regardless of your tax preparation experience, you can volunteer and train with CTA to learn tax preparation. CTA will provide free, comprehensive basic and advanced tax training to all volunteers in a classroom setting led by highly experienced instructors.

CTA’s classroom instruction is in sharp contrast to our tax prep competitors like VITA who only offer online, non-interactive instruction.

Moreover, unlike VITA, the government-controlled free tax preparation service, CTA is an independent organization. This independent status allows us to work more personally with our clients and with significantly greater flexibility to meet their needs. Unlike VITA, CTA works with our clients after their returns are submitted, advocates for our clients to the IRS when necessary, and assists them on a customized basis throughout the calendar year as needed.

With CTA, you will go home feeling great about the work you've done and the people you've helped.

If you are looking for your next job or to graduate school, experience with CTA significantly enhances a resume or graduate school application, while giving back to your community.

Remote and in-person opportunities are available.
