Volunteers across the state can help you prepare your federal and state tax returns. If you're a senior citizen, disabled citizen, or an individual with an income of $35,000 or less ($45,000 or less for families), you are eligible for assistance.
In 1971 a group of tax professionals came together with the same belief -- an individual’s access to quality tax assistance and financial refunds should not depend solely on one’s ability to pay for such services. Shortly thereafter, Prepare and Prosper (formerly AccountAbility Minnesota )was formed and began providing free tax prep to low- and moderate-income individuals.
After 39 years of service, Prepare and Prosper Minnesota’s scope of work has broadened. We assist Minnesotans to move out of poverty by providing pathways to increase income, build assets and become financially secure, and by advocating for change that breaks down barriers to financial success. We do this by:
Providing free tax assistance each year to thousands of low-income working taxpayers and sole-proprietors in the Twin Cities, and helping them to maximize the tax credit refunds they are due to significantly boost their incomes;
Partnering with financial institutions and community organizations to expand access to financial products and services that encourage low- and moderate-income taxpayers to use their cash credits to build assets and improve their long-term financial security.
