Extension Tax Prep & Education
CSREES-USDA, Cooperative Extension Service,
and the Internal Revenue Service collaborate in a national
initiative to increase the benefits obtained by low to moderate
income families from the availability of free income tax assistance
and financial education programs in rural and urban America.
The purpose of this website is to provide a one stop resource for
states participating in the National Project.
- Increase the number of low to moderate income working families
who use free income tax preparation services and claim the Earned
- Maximize the value of tax refunds for EITC eligible families
with children, and
- Involve EITC recipients in Cooperative Extension financial
education and asset building programs
