As part of ONAC’s Get Banked Indian Country initiative and its support of Native Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) programs, through administration of the national ONAC Native EITC/VITA Network and subgrants to Native VITA programs, ONAC is co-hosting a webinar with Code for America about their https://www.getctc.org/en non-filer portal product and how you may help Native families claim their Child Tax Credit and missing stimulus payments by competing a simplified tax filing on GetCTC.org.
GetCTC.org is an IRS-approved official E-file provider. The portal was made in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Treasury and the White House, to try to help people claim the advance Child Tax Credit payments. See https://home.treasury.gov/news/press-releases/jy0322 for more information.
Code for America is trying to get the word out about their GetCTC.org non-filer portal, especially, as the IRS non-filer portal will close by October 15, 2021. The GetCTC.org non-filer portal will be available until November 15, 2021.
GetCTC.org welcomes community members, tribes, and Native-led nonprofits that are interested in sharing information about the GetCTC.org portal with those in their communities, to direct individuals to the GetCTC.org site as outreach providers or navigators. You can help direct individuals to the portal even if you are not a tax preparer.
To learn more about the GetCTC.org tool, and how to direct Native families to this portal, please join the webinar on Thursday, October 14, 2021.
