Program Highlight

April is National Financial Literacy Month

As we welcome spring and celebrate Financial Literacy Month, April is a timely reminder of the importance of understanding personal finances, especially during the U.S. tax season. This month, NWFS is proud to highlight our Tax Navigation Program, designed to assist Oregonians in navigating the complexities of tax filing, particularly for those with limited resources.

Tax season can be daunting, with intricate financial details to navigate. However, it's also an opportunity for reflection and optimization of financial strategies for the year ahead. Understanding tax rules can profoundly impact financial well-being, potentially maximizing refunds or minimizing amounts owed. Yet, for many, accessing professional assistance remains a challenge.

At NWFS, we recognize these challenges and are committed to providing support through our Tax Navigation Program. Our initiative assists qualifying Oregonians in smoothly uploading their tax documents into CASH Oregon's virtual tax preparation system. Additionally, we offer valuable community education on tax filing, empowering individuals with the knowledge they need to feel confident in managing their finances and making informed decisions for their future.
