Earned Income Tax Credit Outreach

We work with organizations throughout Minnesota to spread the word about the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), free tax preparation, and asset building at tax time through free outreach materials, webinars, in-person training, media events, and more!

Taxes 101 is a free, educational webinar about tax and financial basics. It’s geared toward service providers or people who work with low- and moderate-income individuals and families. Watch the recording to gain an understanding of how to help people prepare for tax season, free filing options, filing statuses and credits, and ways to make tax refunds have a lasting impact. It’s produced by Prepare + Prosper, the Claim it! campaign, University of Minnesota Extension, and Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid.
