NWI ABC is more than a tax preparation services. It is a group of committed community leaders who believe they can empower families and improve communities based on the following principles:

• Low wage earners need to avoid paying usury fees to tax preparers and refund anticipation loans
• Economically insecure families need to have bank accounts and basic understanding of money management to accomplish their financial goals.
• Hard working Hoosiers need to claim the Tax Credits to which they are entitled.

Each tax season since it began, the Asset Building Campaign has trained and supported volunteers to file free income tax returns. To book your appointment click the button below!
