From January through April, CHDC coordinates Contra Costa County’s Earn It! Keep It! Save It! program, which assists low income individuals and families to claim their full, correct tax refunds, at no charge. We especially aim to assure that families collect all benefits due to them through underutilized tax provisions such as the Earned Income Tax Credit.
The program saves taxpayers hundreds of dollars in preparation fees, protects them against losing even more money through high-interest “refund anticipation” loans, and helps connect them with other services that can enhance their family financial stability.
If you have a household income below $53,000, this program can help you file your taxes and get your full, correct refund at no charge. We have many locations throughout Contra Costa County.
