C.A.S.H. to Provide Free Tax Preparation for Eligible Monroe County Residents

The organization C.A.S.H. (Creating Assets, Savings, and Hope) is a community coalition of 40-plus organizations, working together to improve life for low and moderate income working families in Monroe County.

C.A.S.H. is now offering free virtual tax preparation services. Due to the pandemic, C.A.S.H. will not be able to accommodate walk-in clients for the general public this year. Clients will be able to upload their documents from home and have their returns done virtually by a certified volunteer tax preparer. Clients will be contacted via phone to review their completed returns and will be able to sign their returns virtually.

Eligibility

To be eligible, filers must meet the following requirements:

  1. Your total household income is less than $56,000 for families with dependents and less than $25,000 for those without dependents and
  2. You work and live in New York State (but not in New York City) and
  3. You don’t have rental property income and
  4. You did not sell stocks, bonds, or other financial assets and
  5. If you are self-employed, you did not have a loss, no employees, and your business expenses were less than $25,000.

C.A.S.H. is grateful for the continued support of ESL and other community partners who have helped us save residents over $45M in tax preparation fees since 2002.
