    Do you have a debt with the IRS that’s more than two years old? If so, you might be getting a letter from the IRS about your account being transferred to a private debt collector. This new program only applies to taxpayers who have had an IRS debt for years, and who were previously contacted about it by the IRS. Here’s how it will work – and how to spot a scam.

    Hello,

     

    In September of 2016, CFED concluded the Community Financial Empowerment Learning Partnership, an 18 month engagement generously supported by JPMorgan Chase.  The Learning Partnership consisted of seven groups of community-based organizations seeking to improve their clients’ financial lives by expanding, expanding and aligning financial capability service delivery to more holistically support the communities they serve. Over the course of the project, important learnings emerged about the process of planning for and delivering financial capability services.   Now, CFED is excited to release Paving the Way: A Roadmap for Organizations Partnering to Deliver Financial Capability Services, a brief which describes the phases of the integration lifecycle—discover, design, implement and converge—as experienced by the members of the Learning Partnership. 


    • ·         Communicate early and often.
    • ·         Build buy-in at all levels.
    • ·         Develop a partnership plan.
    • ·         Establish data tracking systems and processes.

    Integrating services can be an iterative and resource intensive process for organizations and this is even more the case when partnering across organizations and communities.  However, applying the lessons and experiences of the organizations in the Learning Partnership, as described in this brief, may simplify the process and ultimately lead to improved impact on the financial capability of low- and moderate- individuals and families.

     

    We are proud of all that the Learning Partner members accomplished and are pleased to release this brief highlighting their work.

     

    Sincerely,

    CFED

    Want to advocate for a more equitable tax code? This webinar is for you! 


    Join Us For Tax Policy Advocacy 101!

    Creating a More Equitable Tax Code through Advocacy 101!
    Wednesday, February 152–3:30 pm EST

    With all of the recent political changes, we have heard from practitioners an increased desire for opportunities and practical strategies for how to advocate on behalf of low- and moderate-income taxpayers to create a more equitable tax code and promote economic opportunity. CFED’s Federal Policy team has been hard at work developing a crash course in federal tax policy and advocacy opportunities for 501(c)3 organizations. Taxpayer Opportunity Network members and supporters of the Turn It Right-Side Up campaign are invited to join us for this timely discussion to better understand the challenges and advocacy opportunities that lie ahead for community tax preparation programs and the taxpayers you serve.

    CFED’s Federal Legislative Analyst Chad Bolt will share an overview of the most recent federal tax policy landscape and updates related to the community tax preparation field. Janne Huang from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities will also join us to share simple, effective ways for you to engage in advocacy efforts to help your EITC-eligible clients.

    After this webinar, we will extend an invitation for a more in-depth “virtual coffee” on March 15 where we can dive deeper into a community conversation about advocacy strategies—this is your opportunity to share directly with your peers!

    This webinar is free, but advanced registration is required. Register today!

    Unable to attend the live webinar? Register anyway so we can share the recording with you via email after the webinar concludes.
