Income Tax Services

In partnership with the IRS and as part of the Hawaii Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) & Financial Empowerment Coalition, HCAP’s Income Tax Services/ Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) Program helps working families and individuals get the federal tax credits they have earned. In 2019, over $1.2 million was brought back into our community through this program.

HCAP 2021 Income Tax Services / Earned Income Tax Credit Program

In partnership with the IRS and as part of the Hawaii Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) & Financial Empowerment Coalition, HCAP’s Income Tax Services / Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) Program normally runs from the first weekday in February through the first full week of April.  However, due to an overwhelming increase in the demand for COVID-19 related support services, as well as ongoing COVID-19 operational precautions, HCAP will not be providing income tax services in 2021.

If you are interested in obtaining information about available income tax services, you may contact Hawaii Tax Help for updates, locations, and appointments via their website at hawaiitaxhelp.org or email Susan Tamanaha at stamanaha@hawaiitaxhelp.org

While HCAP will not be offering the EITC program in the upcoming year, we continue to provide a wide array of programs and services to those in need, including employment, housing, rental and utility assistance, food assistance, and educational programs.  We have also added several programs and services utilizing CARES Act funding, to help eligible individuals and families impacted by COVID-19.
