Workers that have annual incomes below $58,000 are eligible for free tax filing services and may also qualify for the Federal Earned Income Tax Credit!



Take Opportunities, Maximize Access (TOMA) is a Day One initiative in partnership with Young & Healthy, awarded by the Office of Minority Health,  to help low income communities learn about Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and provide free tax preparation through our IRS certified tax preparer volunteers at Cal State LA and Cal Poly Pomona. 


The Earned Income Tax Credit is a tax refund and is a benefit for working people with low to moderate income. To claim the EITC you must file a tax return, even if you do not owe any tax or are not required to file. Our tax preparer volunteers from Cal State LA and Cal Poly Pomona will help check your eligibility during your appointment and file the appropriate forms for you to claim the credit in your tax return! 

Research shows that the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) may decrease poverty, improve family health, reduce family stress, and improve graduation rates! However, one in five eligible filers do not claim the EITC on their tax returns. Our program's goal is to increase the awareness of the EITC and its benefits so workers can gain more money back into their pockets.
