To assist low-income taxpayers with filing their tax return for free.
Community Tax Aid, Inc. (CTA) is a non-profit, tax-exempt, an all-volunteer organization that provides free tax service to low income taxpayers in New York City. We train all volunteers to be aware of the many special tax problems unique to low income individuals, and the free training qualifies for CPE credit for CPA s.
I really like using my skills to help those who find income tax scary and would not file for money they deserve if they could not find a free tax preparation service.
I have also learned a great deal over the last 10 years. When I started all I knew was what I needed for my own tax return, and not even all of that. Now I can help others with all kinds of situations.
