Delaware County Asset Development Group

DelCoAD is a coalition of agencies, educational and financial institutions dedicated to building the financial health and stability of individuals and families in Delaware County, Pennsylvania.

We provide free income tax preparation at ten sites throughout the county as a component of a year-round campaign, linking individuals and families to asset-building resources.

DelCoAD VITA volunteers file both federal and state income taxes for working individuals and families. We strive to ensure that Delaware County taxpayers gain access to all tax credits for which they are eligible. Among these are refundable credits, such as the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Additional Child Tax Credit. The EITC acts as non-taxed, supplemental income for low-wage earners. This year the credit may offer an adult with three or more qualifying children a refund of up to $5,751. While having your taxes prepared, you may also receive information about other financial resources and asset development tools, including:

  • public benefits (LIHEAP, SNAP, TANF)
  • alternative options to traditional banking, like free prepaid debit cards
  • Savings Bonds
  • FAFSA assistance
  • Banking
