CWF is partnering with Code For America who created GetYourRefund.org as a secure web portal that you can use to upload your tax documents and communicate with our IRS-certified preparers. We are here for you every step of the way should you run into any issues.

“Quickly learning and using new technologies to accomplish for CWF clients what was previously face-to-face tax returns is nothing short of amazing,” says seasoned volunteer Mike Oleksiuk. “I do miss the personal interaction with our clients but this new feature is really helping people file their taxes in these trying times.”

Questions or Problems?

Remember, this is a new program here at CWF and we appreciate your patience. Learning about any problems that pop up will help us better serve individuals who come after you. All questions are good questions!

About this Service

While CWF typically provides free tax preparation in person at one of over 40 taxes, Covid-19 has shifted our focus to assisting taxpayers virtually until we are able to reopen our tax sites. This portal meets all IRS security standards and your information will be as secure as if you were visiting one of our in-person tax sites. GetYourRefund is a partnership between Campaign for Working Families and Code for America, a non-profit that uses the principles and practices of the digital age to improve how government serves the American public, and how the public improves government, starting with the people who need it most.
