Since 1993, MAOF has provided free tax preparation services for households whose income falls below $52,000 through its VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program).” Volunteers participate in IRS-certified training sessions, allowing MAOF to prepare approximately 1,600 tax returns each year.
Clients not only receive FREE tax preparation services, they also learn about available tax credits such as the Earned income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit and Tax Credit for Elderly of the Disabled. The VITA program is a major asset for the Los Angeles community, providing information and assistance to many individuals who would not otherwise be able to file a tax return.
Enrollment for health coverage through Covered California is open from November 1, 2015, to January 31, 2016. Medi-Cal enrollment is year round. Head to http://www.coveredca.com/apply/ to start an application today.
Covered California is the place where Californians can get brand-name health insurance under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. It’s the only place to get federal premium assistance to help you buy private insurance from companies like the ones listed on the right. That means you may qualify for a discount on private insurance, or get health insurance through the state’s Medi-Cal program. Either way, you’ll get great health coverage.
