Testimonial

As a single mom every dollar you can save is important. When Tammy heard she could get her taxes filed at GCA for FREE she was thrilled. 


Saving $300-$400 in tax filing means paying bills and buying food for her family. Tammy works hard as a preschool aid and is pursuing a degree in special education but her priority is establishing a permanent home for her and her boys. Since our site opened in 2017, 


Tammy has filed her taxes with us. She has used her filing fee savings and her returns to purchase a trailer for her own. Each year she takes another step in the journey.


 "I was treated with respect and kindness at the tax site, they were very helpful." --Tammy
