Disability Initiative Workgroup

In the past, CAP partnered with Workforce Oklahomas Disability Navigator Program to access the local disability area network. However, this service has been discontinued due to budget cuts. We still work with the same organizations that belonged to this network, but the loss of the organized network through Workforce Oklahoma is a great loss to the community. Many clients with disabilities fall under the minimum filing threshold and therefore do not have to file taxes. Emphasis is placed on the need to encourage these employed clients with disabilities to file tax forms, even when incomes fall below the filing threshold, in order for the taxpayer to receive the EITC. Clients utilizing CAPs VITA services are usually accompanied by an advocate, friend, family member, or in appropriate cases, an interpreter. The advocate and CAP tax staff work together to help the client understand how the EITC affects their other public benefits and provide them with a clear and accurate picture about the availability of the credits and how to claim them. All CAP tax site locations are ADA compliant.
