Since 2006, the Coalition for Family Economic Progress has come together with a singular purpose: to economically empower the hard-working families of the El Paso area by helping them receive their entire tax refund free of charge. Through the VITA program, our private and public partners allow us to provide tax-related assistance, including …

  • Electronic tax preparation
  • Assistance with Individual Tax Identification Numbers
  • Referrals to the Low Income Taxpayer Clinic
  • Workshops on tax rights and obligations

Our tax-preparation sites are spread across the greater El Paso area, allowing us to serve the communities of Far West Texas and Southern New Mexico. Through these services and locations, we are able to assist thousands of local families in making effective use of Earned Income Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit. Combined with our proven education and outreach efforts, we are able to help families use their tax refunds to build assets that strengthen communities and promote prosperity.
