Prepare + Prosper
Prepare + Prosper, formerly known as AccountAbility Minnesota, is dedicated to providing high quality tax preparation and related financial services to individuals and families of limited means by leveraging volunteer resources and advising and assisting others to provide similar services in their communities.
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.
Tamika went from being homeless to living in a town home in four years. She worked hard to get to get there raising three boys, working, and going to school to earn a degree as an IV technician. As the sole provider for her family, saving – particularly having a three month cushion – is important to her. She chooses Prepare + Prosper (P+P) to do her taxes so that she can maximize her refunds impact on her financial future.
For 45 years, P+P has provided free tax and financial services to low- and moderate-income taxpayers. We facilitate economic security by helping many of the people we serve use their tax refunds to help them meet basic needs, build credit, and save.
Leveraging the support of more than 550 volunteers, we prepare taxes and offer financial services to thousands of Minnesotans via free clinics around the Twin Cities. In addition to ensuring that our customers claim all the tax credits they earned, we address the "money moment" of tax time connecting people to financial services that create pathways to economic security.
With the support of staff, our volunteers work cooperatively at our free tax clinics and are the core of our ability to provide these services in our community each year.
