What does Connect to Collect do?
Connect to Collect (C2C) is a project focused on increasing Utahns’ awareness of their potential EITC benefits and linking them to free, high quality tax preparation assistance through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. C2C does this by:
- Developing an EITC Eligibility Screener Tool(in English and Spanish) where individuals can learn what their EITC benefit might be by answering just four questions.
- Staffing a C2C hotline (385-465-5172) that individuals may call to get answers to questions they may have about the EITC.
- Producing a video that describes the EITC and how interested individuals can get tax preparation assistance through VITA.
- Sharing the above resources with trusted community organizations who encourage their
constituencies to utilize these tools so as to get their EITC benefits.
