About Ladder Up

Ladder Up logo

Ladder Up provides hardworking people with the financial resources and opportunities they need to move up the economic ladder.

Tax Assistance Program (TAP)
Through TAP, we offer free electronic preparation and filing of individual income tax returns to help clients access critical tax refunds. Last year alone, we secured more than $17 million in refunds for hardworking Chicago-area taxpayers, money that can often mean the difference between treading water and turning a corner.

Tax Clinic
Our Tax Clinic helps low income individuals and families who have a controversy with the IRS or Illinois Department of Revenue

Financial Services
We help promote financial education and sound money practices — helping cut ties to predatory financial services.

We provide year-round workshops and one-on-one financial coaching to help clients set financial goals; create a spending plan; access safe and affordable bank products like bank accounts and small dollar loans; and review and correct credit reports and improve credit scores.
