"Tax debt can overwhelm mothers who find themselves suddenly alone, out of work and in trouble with the IRS. There is a nonprofit with a mission to help struggling women." ~Miriam Hernandez, ABC7 News Live!
To Provide Free Assistance and Professional Representation
Our commitment is to offer free, competent professional tax representation to low-income single women in L.A. County.

Our Mission: To provide free assistance to low-income single women regarding federal and state income tax preparation, compliance and resolution in Los Angeles County.
Even today, many 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, including innocent spouse relief to low-income single women in Los Angeles County.

12 Days Of Charitable Giving 2018: The Women's Tax Resolution Center, Inc., By Kelly Phillips Erb.
"It’s the first day of my 12 Days of Charitable Giving for 2018. Readers have suggested deserving charities over the past few weeks, and I’ll be posting one a day for – well, 12 days. (I’m clever that way.) Today’s charity is The Women's Tax Resolution Center, Inc."
“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 and the staff 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
"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
"Five years ago I was in a lot of fear of IRS debt, near garnishment, and nowhere to go. With help from WTRC and Susan Silverman, they were able to work with the IRS and help to resolve my financial debt. Today, I have a successful job and am a productive tax-paying citizen. WTRC truly helped change my life. Great Organization doing amazing work to better the lives of many..." ~ Patti, 2022
