Mission Statement

To provide free assistance to low-income women regarding federal and state income tax preparation, compliance and resolution in Los Angeles County. 

Why We Do What We Do

More than ever,  women are going  through difficult times and are burdened by tax debt due to loss of career, domestic abuse, divorce, catastrophic illness, and other personal circumstances.  Often, they do not have the economic resources to afford representation by an experienced tax professional. Our goal is to provide free competent professional tax representation to low-income women in Los Angeles County.

"I cannot thank The Women’s Tax Resolution Center enough for their guidance and support. After a difficult divorce I was overwhelmed financially and faced enormous Tax debt. With my financial resources completely liquidated, I was facing a levy and garnishment. I was extremely blessed to have found Susan and David. They put me at ease as they continue to work on a resolution with the IRS." Thank you!  ~ S.E., 2018



“Recently divorced, I was faced with a huge tax debt. I was completely overwhelmed and fearful of facing the IRS alone. Then I heard about The Women’s Tax Resolution Center. David took the time to review my case, explain all my options and advocate for me. I could not have afforded the representation they provided. Now my tax situation is manageable because of the help and dedication of The Women’s Tax Resolution Center.” ~ J.R., 2017
