What do advocates need to know to help survivors this tax season?

Author(s): Publisher(s):
Tax season can evoke a range of emotions for people, from excitement to anxiety. Frequently, tax time is associated with a tax refund, which can represent the single largest lump sum many families receive in any given year. These refunds can provide a pathway to transition out of poverty and to build wealth. NRCDV's March 2020 TA Question of the Month explores strategies for supporting survivors this tax season.
