TOMA TU TAX refund eitc
Day One has been awarded by the Office of Minority Health a grant to help low income communities learn about Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and provide free tax preparation through our IRS certified tax volunteers at Cal State LA and Cal Poly Pomona.
EITC is a tax refund and is a benefit for working people with low to moderate income. Our tax preparers help check your eligibility during your appointment and file it in your tax return. If you are a worker with dependent children that have annual incomes below $56,000, you may be eligible for the Federal Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC)!
Research shows that EITC can decrease poverty, improve family health, reduce family stress, and improve graduation rates! However, one in five eligible filers don't claim the EITC. We want to help raise awareness about this benefit so you can enjoy the extra money with your family.

free tax preparation (VITA)
We offered free tax preparation at 3 sites in partnership with Cal State LA and Cal Poly Pomona to community members in San Gabriel Valley and Greater Los Angeles Area.
170 tax refunds
$58, 941 Federal EITC receipts
$15, 570 Cal EITC receipts
Community members arrive at our office locations and we helped them log onto Zoom with the tax preparer. Our services are free because of the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA) where tax certified volunteers volunteer their time to offer free tax preparation to families making less than $57K.
