St. Paul, MN 55114-1055
Company description: Our work is rooted in economic justice.
In 1971 a group of tax professionals came together with the same belief - an individual's access to quality tax assistance and financial refunds should not depend solely on one's ability to pay for such services. Shortly thereafter, AccountAbility Minnesota was formed and began providing free tax prep to low -- and moderate-income individuals.
After 39 years of service, AccountAbility Minnesota's scope of work has broadened. We assist Minnesotans to move out of poverty by providing pathways to increase income, build assets and become financially secure, and by advocating for change that breaks down barriers to financial success.
