Employed immigrants are required to file taxes, regardless of status or documents used to acquire employment. Many immigrants face barriers to filing income taxes.  They may be afraid that the IRS will pass their information on to immigration enforcement.  Additionally, the complex tax code is not easy to understand for people who may not speak English or have a knowledge of all available credits and rebates. Service providers working with the foreign-born can offer tax assistance preparation and support as their clients work to fulfill this federal requirement. The featured model programs, trainings and tools below can help expand the breadth of immigrant integration programs by expanding the financial security services available. The Outside Resources section also includes some links to helpful materials produced by other organizations.
