Connect To Collect

About The Project

The Connect to Collect project aims to increase family health, welfare and income through making free tax preparation available to individuals, couples and families and ensuring they apply for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC).  Consistently, in Utah, there is a 24% non-participation rate for the Earned Income Tax Credit - Which means that 57,000 households did not apply for the EITC and that $66.4 million dollars in income assistance was foregone. 

Connect to Collect's mission is to increase low-income Utahn's participation of the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and the Child Tax Credit (CTC) by linking households to free, high quality tax prepartation year-round.
