Mission Statement

Description

Tax Help

CEP provides low-wage workers with free, high quality tax preparation and an alternative to paid tax preparers. We serve families who make less than $50,000 and individuals who make less than $25,000. Based on these income guidelines, we can help one in three Illinois residents.

Tax Clinic

Through our tax clinic, we provide free, professional representation to low-wage taxpayers facing an IRS controversy. We also o ffer tax training for small businesses to establish sound business practices, build their knowledge of record keeping and self-employment tax laws.

We provide year-round workshops and one-on-one financial coaching to h elp clients set financial goals; c reate a spending plan; access safe and affordable bank products like bank accounts and small dollar loans; and review and correct credit reports and improve credit scores.
