Evidence of Program's Success

We experienced a 10% increase in the number of returns prepared this past season. We believe the increase is related to better, more consistent publicity, a more aggressive public education campaign and referrals through our partner agencies.

We are consistently invited to provide on-site services at public libraries, churches, and senior residences. New clients tell us they heard about us from a friend or co-worker, or saw our publicity in a public place. Many of our clients have returned to us for 20 years or more.
