Policy

Community Tax Centers and EITC

It is important to expand community tax centers and access to free tax preparation assistance so that all regions of Texas are served.

This campaign’s policy agenda will focus on creating state public policy to support and expand community tax centers across the state and support federal legislation that will increase funding for programs and services.

The VITA Permanence Act (H.R. 1875) was introduced by United States Representatives Danny Davis (D-IL-7) and Brand Wenstrup (R-OH-2) on March 27, 2019 to permanently authorize the BITA program and allow funding for the program to increase to $30 million.  Under this legislation, the IRS would continue to adminster the VITA program by providing training and certification to VITA volunteers and ensuring that VITA grant recipients continue to maintain strong records of accuracy.

Join advocates nationally to increase VITA funding to $30 million by signing Prosperity Now's petition.
