Natco Community Empowerment Center is a one-stop-shop, providing many services to help the underserved, marginalized population in our area as they change their lives and build a thriving future. One vital service we provide is FREE income tax preparation. The COVID-19 pandemic required NCEC to implement a new, innovative, and transformative process, allowing us to remain open while other sites were forced to close. This alternative method added comfort and safety measures for their clients as well as their volunteers and staff. NCEC served 1,158 taxpayers in 2021 resulting in more than 1.5 million dollars in Federal refunds. When spent locally, businesses in our area and our economy were stimulated.
The chart below helps demonstrate how many of our efforts have been impacted negatively by the pandemic but our free tax preparation service has continued to grow, indicating the strong need for this service in our local area. We continue to look for ways to safely provide our services. In 2022, we will offer classes and training through virtual meetings.
