What is Tax-A-Thon?

Ladder Up’s Tax Assistance Program (TAP) pairs low-income individuals and families with qualified volunteers who assist them in filing their taxes for free and securing the tax refunds owed to them. TAP delivers a real financial impact to underserved communities. Our volunteers deliver an average of $1,941 per return, giving individuals and families a degree of financial freedom while also encouraging consumer spending in neighborhoods that need it most.

During the month of February, we make the most of tax time with our annual Tax-a-Thon Event. Kicking off on February 3, 2024, with a big celebration of what we do and whom we serve.

The February 3rd event will be at the TAP site at Olive-Harvey College from 9am – 2pm.

Prizes, of course

Did we mention that there are prizes? Each week, we will draw the name of a volunteer for a special prize! At the end of February, anyone who volunteered for 12 or more hours will be entered into a drawing for a grand prize!
